Publisher's Summary

An astonishing account of the assassination of America's most beloved and celebrated civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr., by New York Times best-selling author, James L. Swanson.

In his meteoric, 13-year rise to fame, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led a mass movement for civil rights - with his relentless peaceful, non-violent protests, public demonstrations, and eloquent speeches. But as violent threats cast a dark shadow over Dr. King's life, Swanson hones in on James Earl Ray, a bizarre, racist prison escapee who tragically ends King's life.

As he did in his best-selling Scholastic MG/YA books Chasing Lincoln's Killer and "The President Has Been Shot!", Swanson transports listeners back to one of the most shocking, sad, and terrifying events in American history.

Interesting

I was unaware of the circumstances surrounding the assassination and manhunt and found this very interesting. It was spoiled a bit by the narration as the narrators interpretation for voices was somewhat strange and distracting. In most cases she just spoke slower. Other than that I enjoyed this book.
