ONE MONTH EARLIER, at 10:55 on the morning of October 7, Raymond Murray was stationed at the west entrance of the Sheraton Cadillac hotel when the president of the United States walked out toward a rippling sea of people stretching two blocks down Washington Boulevard. Murray was a rookie cop, sprung from the army and just a month out of the police academy, still living with his mother on Mansfield Street on Detroit’s west side. He had finished first in his academy class on the scholastic tests, but it was his lack of seniority rather than apparent potential that got him assigned to the presidential detail when he reported for roll call that morning at 1300 Beaubien. He did not have a squad car and walked the mile from headquarters to the hotel. Sheraton Cadillac was the official name—it had been part of the chain for a decade by then—but Book Cadillac is what many people in Detroit called it, ever since the Book brothers opened it in the twenties as the largest hotel in America.
