Editorial Reviews

Statesman Journal Newspaper - Dan Hays

"Gulick has chosen to tell the story in an entirely linear manner. . . . The result is a gripping, exciting and frightening story of a desperate killer and men so determined to bring him down that they became as dangerous as their target. More than a thousand men pursued Tracy through Oregon and Washington. Virtually all of them were armed, including some of the newspaper reporters."—Dan Hays, Statesman Journal Newspaper
