What the Critics Say

“A masterful recounting of the surprisingly wide and intricate conspiracy of Southern sympathizers who formed the murder plot, focusing on perhaps the most controversial figure in the story.” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

"Larson captures brilliantly the atmosphere of Mary Surratt’s trial in a crowded court room.... Her description of the drama of Mary’s last hours, when she was broken by a death sentence that neither she nor her lawyers had believed possible, makes compelling reading.” (Spectator, UK)

“[A] spirited narrative... the tale itself could not be better told, nor could the cast of characters be brought more to life.” (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Great story."
    Would you try another book from Kate Clifford Larson and/or Laural Merlington?

    Story was very interesting, but the narration was monotone at times.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

    Maybe


    Did The Assassin's Accomplice inspire you to do anything?

    Keep listening, but try more non fiction.
