The history, the hunts, the captures -- and the criminals still at large In 1950, the FBI officially instituted its now-legendary list of the "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" as a means of alerting the public and enlisting their aid in the apprehension of notorious felons. Over the years, it has included such infamous names as bank robber Willie Sutton, serial killer Ted Bundy, and assassin James Earl Ray -- and 447 of the 475 criminals have been apprehended, many of them thanks to tips from ordinary citizens. In this gripping and endlessly fascinating account, New York Times bestselling author Dary Matera offers readers a stunning, in-depth look at some of the most remarkable manhunts in the history of law enforcement -- and shocking profiles of the crimes and the criminals currently enshrined . . . including an elusive mass-murderer with a $27 million bounty on his head: Osama Bin Laden.
