Abstract:

"A hypnotic novel intertwining the author's past with James Earl Ray's attempt to escape after shooting Martin Luther King Jr"--

1968. After shooting Martin Luther King Jr., James Earl Ray has evaded authorities, driven to Canada, secured a fake passport, and flew to London, all while relishing the media's confusion about his location and his image on the FBI's Most Wanted list. At the Hotel Portugal in Lisbon, he anxiously awaits a visa to Angola. For his last ten days of freedom Ray walks around Lisbon, paying for his pleasures and rehearsing his fake identities.
