In the late 1960’s, Martin Luther King is still consumed with the waning civil rights movement and frequently foresees his death.  Meanwhile, an escaped convict blends back into society and charts a course of murder. Sides’ gripping narrative follows both King and his killer on their trajectories until the tragic result.   Once the assassin is on the run, the action intensifies even more as he is hunted down by the FBI.  This highly readable blend of psychological thriller and historical narrative is both exciting and enlightening.
