The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history -- the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness. At the very center of this story is John Wilkes Booth, America's notorious villain. A Confederate sympathizer and a member of a celebrated acting family, Booth threw away his fame and wealth for a chance to avenge the South's defeat. For almost two weeks, he confounded the manhunters, slipping away from their every move and denying them the justice they sought. Based on rare archival materials, obscure trial transcripts, and Lincoln's own blood relics, Manhunt is a fully documented work, but it is also a fascinating tale of murder, intrigue, and betrayal. A gripping hour-by-hour account told through the eyes of the hunted and the hunters, this is history as you've never read it before.

In the civil war that has gripped America, there are no more neighbors, only side against side, in an increasingly vicious battle for what is left of the country. From bestselling author Ian Slater. "As impelling a storyteller as you're likely to encounter."—Clive Cussler Under an iron fist, the militia movement has mushroomed. Now legendary leaders have been liberated from a heavily guarded Phoenix hospital—and hostages taken for a furious, bloody ride to the California border. It’s the spark the armies needed and an excuse for the Federals to unleash Patton reincarnate, Gen. Douglas Freeman. In a once peaceful corner, from Sacramento to Seattle, America now burns. A new generation of automated weapons has been brought to the field, the skies split by artillery and the desert nights lit up by infrared. With Americans facing off against Americans, the fight for the USA has reached a turning point. But from the other side of the globe, a new enemy prepares to tip the scales of battle with the ultimate killing tool…

"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.

A manhunt can involve helicopters, hounds and hundreds of military or police personnel, but it can also turn on the evidence of one broken spider’s web. Manhunts today might involve the technology of infrared cameras and surveillance devices such as powerful satellite technology, but they may also rely on examining the width, depth, tread and intervals of footprints, or observing minute changes in the natural environment. From searching for high-value enemy targets such as Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein to finding soldiers caught behind enemy lines, from escaped prisoners and serial killers to a missing child, SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Manhunt explores just how the military and police forces track people down. Including many case studies of high-value targets, suspected criminals and fugitives from justice, and with extensive background on the different techniques in tracking used, from traditional Native American trackers’ skills to the latest high-tech methods, Manhunt brings together the history and science of tracking. Illustrated with 150 maps and photographs, SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Manhunt is an authoritative examination of tracking from footprints to forensics and a must for anyone interested in the latest military practices, true crime and survival skills.
