Publisher's Summary

While refurbishing an old ranch building in San Angelo, Texas, a man and his friend find mummified human remains hidden between the walls of the structure. An autopsy reveals the memoirs of John Wilkes Booth secreted in the abdominal cavity. The memoirs disclose the scheme between Booth and his collaborators to kidnap President Abraham Lincoln. But the story also reveals that their plans were discovered by a greater conspiracy of high-ranking Union officials whose plan was much more insidious: to assassinate the president.

Reluctantly, and in order to save himself, Booth agreed to be the one to pull the trigger, but he foils the groups plan to silence him after the deed by escaping. The conspirators incorrectly identify a body as Booth, and promptly hang his accomplices before the true masterminds' identities can be revealed.

Thus begins the tale of Booth's years traveling the world, encountering a host of notable characters, and living a secret lie.
