Ride Lightning

by Nirjay Mahindru

Read by AWL on 5 December 2022

Ride Lightning explores the legal machinations that occurred around James Earl Ray, the alleged assassin of Dr Martin Luther King.

Was Ray tricked into his “Guilty” plea by the lawyers that were meant to be working on his behalf or did he concoct a story in an attempt to hide his guilt and garner sympathy? How substantive was the case for the prosecution?

Dr King’s assassination was one of the defining moments in recent American history but facts sometimes weave into narratives and the line between truth and fiction can often become easily blurred.
