James Ray Renton - thief, counterfeiter and bank robber - became one of America's 10 Most Wanted when he was charged with murdering a young Arkansas policeman in 1976. After a daring escape from maximum security prison he was recaptured and whilst in solitary confinement wrote a 60 page account of his escape and sent them to his friend, Danny Lyon. After Renton's death in 1995 Lyon tracked down Dinker Cassel, who was given a life sentence along with Renton for the murder. This is a gripping tale of two men - one alive, one dead - and an unparalleled portrayal of prison life.
