SIGNED. First edition. NEW with a light bump to two tips. Hardcover with dust jacket. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, BOXED. 200 pages; 20 duo-toned b&w and color photographic plates; 6.5 x 9.5 inches. SIGNED BY LYON on the title page. Here, Lyon tells the story of James Ray Renton, a thief, counterfeiter, bank robber, and Lyon's close friend, who in 1976 became one of America's 10 Most Wanted Men, after he was charged with murdering a policeman. He later escaped from a maximum security unit, landing him on the FBI's 15 Most Wanted list, before his eventual recapture. After Renton's death, Lyon began an investigation into the trial. Drawing on police and FBI files and tape recordings, RentonÕs own written account of his escape, and letters from other prisoners, Lyon has crafted a tale of murder and betrayal, romance and robbery.
