"They will catch you sooner or later," could be the theme of this book on famous manhunts. Some are memorable, some have been forgotten, but in each one a desperate fugitive is trying to run, and generally failing. From famous killers like John Wilkes Booth, who murdered President Abraham Lincoln, and John Dillinger, who killed many others, and including one of the worst of all, Theodore "Ted" Bundy, who killed and than raped the bodies of many pretty young women. Some are now on death rows in prisons, where they belong, and some are in prison awaiting the next meeting in court. And some, like Michael Goodwin, who was convicted of arranging the murders of speed king Mickey Thompson and his lovely wife Trudy, swear they are innocent and are only waiting for a court to free them. Each of the stories in this book is different, but all are gripping.
