    On April 23, 1967, Prisoner #416J, an inmate at the notorious Missouri State Penitentiary, escaped in a breadbox. Fashioning himself Eric Galt, this nondescript thief and con man - whose real name was James Earl Ray -drifted through the South, into Mexico, and then Los Angeles, where he was galvanized by George Wallace's racist presidential campaign. With relentless storytelling drive, Sides follows Galt and King as they crisscross the country, one stalking the other, until the crushing moment at the Lorraine Motel.

    Overall

    This was an excellent book. I love when authors read their own work, and I couldn't have been happier with Hampton Sides. It reads like fiction, and makes learning about history fascinating. I was quite young when the events in this book happened, but Sides' story brought the world of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the events that were happening alive. The tragic assassination of King is worthy of reflection. I will recommend this book to everyone and have my children listen to it as well.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    This is a wonderful story and a must for all of you James Lee Burke fans! I love the true accounts of Hurricane Katrina that he used in the book. Very moving.
