    Story
    (39)

    The assassination of Abraham Lincoln is usually told as a tale of a lone deranged actor who struck from a twisted lust for revenge. This is not only too simple an explanation; Blood on the Moon reveals that it is completely wrong. John Wilkes Booth was neither mad nor alone in his act of murder. He received the help of many, not the least of whom was Dr. Samuel Alexander Mudd, the Charles County physician who has been portrayed as the innocent victim of a vengeful government.

    Alan says: "Terrific listen."
    "Amazed."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Blood on the Moon: The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln the most enjoyable?

    The reader is clear and pleasant to the ears. Very detailed information is presented to support a view that has been in question for so long. As a history buff and constant learner, I was amazed at the questions I had running through my head that included "but what about this....." which were discussed and answered with obvious, extensive research.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just amazed at the contradictory evidence to the ever popular belief that Dr. Mudd was innocent and that even in this 21st century we can question ourselves on the accuracies of written history.


    What about William Coon’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Coon was articulate, relaxed in his tone, and for the most part maintained continuity between chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read several books about Lincoln and this to me was one on my short list of jaw-dropping "wow" moments that made me appreciate the hours and hours of research culminated for this well-written book.
