Publisher's Summary

The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin, John Wilkes Booth, led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild 12-day chase through the streets of Washington, DC, across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.

James L. Swanson's Manhunt is a fascinating tale of murder, intrigue, and betrayal. A gripping hour-by-hour account told through the eyes of the hunted and the hunters, this is history as you've never listened to it before.

    Story
    "Written by a Booth fanboy."

    I thought this was going to be told from these investigative side, but it was told from the criminal side. The author sounds like a Booth apologist, like he admired that man. I didn't like this book. Booth was a narcissist and a murderer and his decision to kill President Lincoln was based on one thing: racism.
