He was supposed to be dead. Five years after Eric Rudolph escaped into the mountains of North Carolina, the FBI had long since abandoned the largest manhunt ever launched on U.S. soil. The fugitive accused of bombing the Atlanta Olympics, a gay bar, and two abortion clinics, leaving a trail of carnage across the southeast, had become a figure of folk legend. Many of his pursuers thought he had either skipped the country or crawled into a cave to die. In fact, Rudolph had been haunting the mountains and towns he knew best, pilfering food, stealing trucks, stalking the men who hunted him, and keeping his secrets buried in the woods. Then one night Rudolph got careless, and a rookie cop captured him a few miles from where he had first disappeared. But even in custody, Rudolph remained a mystery.

In Lone Wolf, Maryanne Vollers brings the reader inside one of the most sensational cases of domestic terrorism in American history. In addition to her unprecedented correspondence with Rudolph, Vollers had access to the FBI, the ATF, federal prosecutors, members of Rudolph's defense team, and his family to re-create the story in all its sweeping breadth and complexity.

Lone Wolf asks the inevitable questions: Who is Eric Rudolph, and why did he kill? Is he the hate-filled neo-Nazi described by federal agents, or is he the passionate, curious, and engaging man described by his lawyers and his family? Can both personalities exist in one rare, complicated, and deadly individual?

The profilers and psychologists Vollers interviews identify Rudolph as a "lone offender," a self-appointed avenger with no real alliances and no meaningful social ties. It puts Rudolph in the same category as Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber, and Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber. The "lone wolf" believes history will judge him to be a hero. Society judges him to be a monster. Without losing sight of the hideous violence of his crimes, Lone Wolf seeks to put a human face on this iconic killer as it explores the painful mysteries of the human heart.

"Lone Wolf: Eric Rudolph; Murder, Myth, and the Pursuit of an American Outlaw" by Maryanne Vollers. My common sense told me not to bother buying a book like this. I am better off staying completely away from them. I usually wind up angry and furious. Where Rudolph is rabid pro life, I am rabid pro choice and don't have a bit of patience left in me for arrogant, cocky, little self righteous twits like him. They represent all that is wrong in that movement and infuriate me. But, it is an excellent book well written and fast moving to keep the reader interested (my only interest was what breeds a cold blooded sociopath like him, who has no regard for human life that is alive and breathing air, just hypothetical life in the womb. You have a serious problem when you only consider the womb more important than living breathing people. But she answered that quickly...he is a racist and bigot who only sees women as something that should be 'barefoot and pregnant'. And most of it was answered in one of the final chapters).
Rudolph is not presented as a legend, but as what he actually was a common criminal nothing more. That was what concerned me when I bought the book. So many of his type of criminal are presented as a non-conformist who isn't so bad of a guy when you get to know him. Their crimes are minimized, glamorized or rationalized by an element in our society. Like Claude Dallas was here in the west, when all he was a thug and murderer. No one cared about the two game wardens who were only doing their jobs and lost their lives. Their victims who have to live with their injury's the rest of their lives, get lost in the terrorist's wake. And that's all Rudolph was a terrorist. But thankfully that wasn't the case here. She presents a clear and concise picture of Rudolph and I didn't pick up on any opinions in the matter or anything other than what should be present the facts. Even when she came to anti-government element that involved itself in the manhunt.
I didn't bother reading the majority of his manifesto, I have heard the drivel before other places, I doubt he anything new to add to the dialog. I feel about it like the business woman did his driving on the freeway in Birmingham, it's in the same category and worthy of nothing more.
But the chapter entitled 'True Believers' at the end was extremely interesting and enlightening and well worth the time to read. But, for the most part (minus those few objectionable parts that I omitted), it is an excellent read that takes one through the entire investigation from the beginning to the end. Introducing investigators, attorney's as well as the those they come across in the process of investigating and their techniques. It delves into Rudolph's life as well as law enforcement. I thoroughly enjoyed most of it.

Detailed, direct and easy to follow...the author did a good job of obtaining info from a variety of sources that ensured the book was accurate. Interesting, yet tragic story.

This book is the result of a very skilled author who also put forth an amazing amount of research, interviews, and study in order to accurately tell this tale. Truth is always more complex and interesting than fiction, and this author portrayed the fascinating story of Eric Rudolph's crimes and capture in a way that was not only educational, it was also captivating.

We all know how the story began and ended, yet the book is still entertaining and highly recommended. The details and inner look at the crimes and their impact are portrayed in a story-like form. Anyone interested in right-wing crime, domestic or lone wolf terrorism, or just a good non-fiction book should check this out.
