Summary
"Resurrecting a forgotten American folk hero who captivated the nation as an outlaw for economic justice, World, Chase Me Down is a debut novel of adrenaline-fueled, page-turning suspense based on the first great crime of the last century: the revenge kidnapping by out-of-work former butcher Pat Crowe of the sixteen-year-old son of Omaha's wealthiest meatpacking tycoon--the man who forced him out of business--for a ransom of $25,000 in gold. What follows is a manhunt that was dubbed "the thrill of the nation, " as Crowe burgles, safe-cracks, and bond-jumps his way from Omaha to Butte, Montana; Columbia, Missouri; Nogales, Arizona; New York City; London; Durban, South Africa; Philadelphia; and ultimately back to Omaha, where he turns himself in, reunites with the woman he never stopped loving, and rallies public sentiment behind him in a triumphant circus trial. Once the most wanted man in America, Pat Crowe is beset by vices yet unyielding in his sense of right and wrong. As if channeling Mark Twain and Charles Portis, Andrew Hilleman has given us a character who is bawdy and soulful, grizzled, salty, and hard-drinking, and with a voice as unforgettable as that of Lucy Marsden in Alan Gurganus's Oldest Confederate Widow Tells All--an anti-hero you can't help rooting for"--
