Why did a brilliant, self-taught rocket scientist who just wanted to be left alone go off the rails when a cop showed up? What happens to people when the American dream is stripped away? And what is it like for the men who are sworn to protect and serve? Donald Kueck, a desert hermit who loved animals and hated civilization, gunned down beloved deputy sheriff Steven Sorensen when he approached his trailer at high noon on a scorching summer day. As the sound of rifle fire echoed across the Mojave, Kueck took off into the desert he knew so well, kicking off the biggest manhunt in modern California history.
