Unsolved Case Files: Jailbreak at Alcatraz

Sullivan, Tom

The second book in this graphic non-fiction series about real FBI cases is a gripping account of an escape from Alcatraz, the infamous island prison.

CASE NO. 002: THE ROCK
June 12, 1962
SAN FRANCISCO BAY, CALIFORNIA
7:18 A.M.

A corrections officer at Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary tries to awaken inmate AZ-1441, Frank Morris. But when he shakes the unresponsive man, his head rolls off the pillow and crashes to the floor! Soon the guards realize that Morris and two other inmates, brothers John and Clarence Anglin, had done the seemingly impossible: escaped from the notorious island prison.

This is the incredible true story of the daring and inventive escape and a decades-long manhunt in a case that remains unsolved to this day.

Comics panels, reproductions of documents from real FBI files, and photos from the investigation combine for a thrilling read for sleuths of all ages.
