Product Description

Product Description

The Man Who Mailed Himself Out of Jail is the incredible, true story of the World’s greatest prison escape artist, Richard Lee McNair. Many know the story of the killer’s spectacular escape from a Louisiana penitentiary in April 2006 and his near-capture shortly after by police on railroad tracks. But for the first time, we get the full story behind McNair’s escape and his time on the lam.

Now held at the Supermax in Colorado, Richard McNair has given Canadian crime reporter Byron Christopher exclusive access to his story.

After nearly five years of research and travel across the U.S. and Canada, the author takes readers on a wild ride. They’re with McNair every step of the way, through his three escapes. They see how the Oklahoma native avoided bloodhounds, search helicopters and a massive police dragnet. They feel the joys and defeats of McNair's time on the lam, get a play-by-account of his capture by the R.C.M.P. in the fall of 2007 ... and with proprietary information about the 1987 North Dakota homicide, readers get a front row seat to the murder that put McNair behind bars.

This is the best story I have read in a long time. The author's extensive investigation into all facets of this case ensures a captivating and truthful transcription of all the events which took place and sets the record straight in many cases. From the subjects background, his escapes, to his capture and beyond. The author's solving of other crimes for the police during his investigation of the escape, lends further credence to the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who has interest in crime stories. I hope someone makes this into a movie in the future. It has all the items required for a Blockbuster!

When in Campbellton I had eye to eye contact with the fugitive just hours before he was caught . I regognize him from his photo on the cover of the book. I later learned that he had spent his last night of freedom very close to my home.
This book is just great. Love the way it is written.
Everybody who like stories about fugitives that show they are not all bad, should read this one book.

This book was written about the man who was caught in my hometown, so it is of much interest to me. It is very interesting to see how he thinks, operated, what he went through, what kind of man he is/was but of course most of the info comes from him so is it all true ? no idea but makes for interesting reading. Good job Byron Christopher...

This real life story kept me interested and looking for more until the end. The numerous sources of information from the Criminal, Family, Public, and Police etc. are testament to the excellent journalistic work of the author. This book does not excuse the crime or the criminal in any way, as it addresses both tragedy and remorse with a little humor along the way. It is definitely not a dull read and recommended for both crime and human interest enthusiasts.
