Overview

The world watched in horror as passenger planes crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. But it wasn't the only story to make headlines that infamous day. A 30-year-old cold case was solved. Veteran crime reporter Bob Mitchell tells the untold story behind the international hunt and arrest of Patrick Critton, a former black militant, who lived a double life as a respected school teacher, model citizen, community activist and mentor of troubled youth in America's largest city. His capture just days before 9/11 is as amazing a story as his intriguing life journey. It's a tale of a rebel boy, who grew up in poverty, went to university and became an underground cell leader, a bank robber, a hijacker and a Cuban sugar cane farmer before turning his life around. Using interviews, court transcripts, newspaper files and Critton's own words, Mitchell paints a revealing portrait of a fugitive who spent 30 years running away from his own conscience.
