Dead Run: The Murder of a Lawman and the Greatest Manhunt of the Modern American West

On a sunny May morning in 1998 in Cortez, Colorado, three desperados in a stolen truck opened fire on the town cop, shooting him 20 times; then they blasted their way past dozens of police cars and disappeared into 10,000 square miles of the harshest wilderness terrain on the North American continent. Self-trained survivalists, the outlaws eluded the most sophisticated law enforcement technology on the planet and a pursuit force that represented more than 75 local, state, and federal police agencies with dozens of SWAT teams, U.S. Army Special Forces....

Publisher's Summary

On a sunny May morning in 1998 in Cortez, Colorado, three desperados in a stolen truck opened fire on the town cop, shooting him 20 times; then they blasted their way past dozens of police cars and disappeared into 10,000 square miles of the harshest wilderness terrain on the North American continent. Self-trained survivalists, the outlaws eluded the most sophisticated law enforcement technology on the planet and a pursuit force that represented more than 75 local, state, and federal police agencies with dozens of SWAT teams, U.S. Army Special Forces, and more than 500 officers from across the country.

This is the first in-depth account of this sensational case, replete with overbearing local sheriffs, Native American trackers, posses on horseback, suspicion of vigilante justice and police cover-ups, and the blunders of the nation’s most exalted crime fighters pursuing outlaws into territory in which only they could survive.

    "Sounds like fiction...but it's not! Great Listen!"

    If you didn't know that this is an actual crime going in, you might think that this was a novel! It has everything: real bad guys, questionable lawmen, good guys in white hats, innocent bystanders, and more! I hesitate to give any details because it might taint your enjoyment. This is a very nice listen. It's compelling and fast paced with the characters fleshed out. This well written and performed audiobook draws you in from the start and doesn't let go. Do yourself a favor and schedule some serious listening time to this title - you won't regret it.

    The performance is very well done. Arthur Morey matches the narration to the scenes with excellent style. Well done!

    Story
    "Incredible Saga, Well written and exciting"

    Nonfiction with the skill of a novelist. Takes you there and hooks you from the beginning. I couldnt stop listening. Covers every angle of this tragic mystery but in an enlightening, never dull manner that makes you feel like you're there. Officer Claxton died a hero, almost certainly preventing what could have been a devastating act of domestic terrorism the likes of which this country has never seen. Perfect narration. Right up there with Columbine as one of the best true-crime non-fictions Ive ever read

    I spend 90+ minutes a day in my car, Audible makes it enjoyable regardless of what's happening in traffic. My taste varies from endurance fitness to economics and from to combat stories and romance novels.

    Story
    "A fascinating and well researched true crime book"

    True Crime is not my normal genre, especially since the victims of the crime include members of law enforcement and the story reveals the incredible ability of the bad guys to evade capture despite one of the largest manhunts in the history of the West. The author did a remarkable job researching not only the facts, but separating facts from individual opinion and compelling theories. From re-interviewing key witnesses to taking a critical eye to the evidence of record, Schultz drew me into the story and gave me a new perspective on a story I loosely paid attention to over the last 18 years.

    Despite some of the author's personal opinions turning me off initially, as he settled in to tell the story I was truly pulled in and compelled to read on. Unexpected twists emerging out of out-of-fashion theories supported by an abundance of evidence put an entirely different spin on what you've been told about this story if you followed it in the main stream news. Schultz's research connects the dots that just don't add up if you try to swallow the official story fronted by police in 2007. That doesn't make the bad guys any less evil for their actions in 1998, but it does give a more complete and complex story when you look at all of the facts and evaluate all of the evidence.

    Story
    "a crime solved, or maybe not?"

    Interesting recap of events, both actual when known, and informed speculation, when the facts were unknown. The part based upon speculation builds toward a potentially terrifying outcome, which, fortunately never happened.
