On a sunny May morning in 1998 in Cortez, Colorado, three desperados in a stolen truck opened fire on the town cop, shooting him twenty times; then they blasted their way past dozens of police cars and disappeared into 10,000 square miles of the harshest wilderness terrain on the North American continent. Self-trained survivalists, the outlaws eluded the most sophisticated law enforcement technology on the planet and a pursuit force that represented more than seventy-five local, state, and federal police agencies with dozens of swat teams, U.S. Army Special Forces, and more than five hundred officers from across the country. This is the first in-depth account of this sensational case, replete with overbearing local sheriffs, Native American trackers, posses on horseback, suspicion of vigilante justice and police cover-ups, and the blunders of the nation's most exalted crime-fighters pursuing outlaws into territory in which only they could survive.

Professional reviews

"After a police officer in the small town of Cortez, Colorado, is gunned down by survivalists who then escape into the wild in a stolen water truck, the ensuing manhunt brings surprising information to light. Narrator Arthur Morey takes a measured, deliberate tone that reflects the suspense and intrigue of the intensive search for the gunmen. The book profiles suspects Jason McVean, Bobby Mason, and Alan Pilon and discusses various scenarios of what may have happened to bring about their mysterious ends in this strange case. Morey is an able reader who conveys all the drama of the manhunt in the wilderness. S.E.G. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
