    The Spandau Diary -- what was in it? Why did the secret intelligence agencies of every major power want it? Why was a brave and beautiful woman kidnapped to get it? Why did a chain of deception and violent death lash out across the globe, from survivors of the Nazi past to warriors in this new conflict about to explode? Why did the world's entire history of World War II have to be rewritten as the future hung over a nightmare abyss?

    Four days ago, US senator Lloyd Berns was killed in a hit-and-run on the island of Capri. His death deals a serious blow to President Carson's precarious new administration - but more worrying is that Berns was never officially on Capri. According to the White House, Berns was on a tour of the Ukraine. Agent Jack McClure is in Moscow, babysitting Carson's troubled daughter. But the President needs Jack to investigate the senator's final days in the Ukraine, and since Alli Carson won't be parted from her protector, he'll have to take her along.

    Too many major and subplots to keep the reader in focus. A multitude of foreign (Russian block) names made it even more difficult.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    If I had no more unread books, I would re-read Kennedy only after re-reading Lincoln.

    The detailed sequence of the mirroring the actual events was extrodinary.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene most memorable was the lead up to the assassination and the actual event itself.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Lincoln to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What other book might you compare Killing Lincoln to and why?

    There is no other comparable book that I am aware of


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Lincoln searching for someone to go to the theater: The President being tuned down?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A master historian tells the assination story like it was


    Any additional comments?

    Reilly should be hired for more book readings
