The Bob Edwards Show, Brad Meltzer, August 5, 2013 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Brad Meltzer, August 5, 2013

Of the more than two dozen assassination attempts on U.S. Presidents, only four have been successful. In his new book The Fifth Assassin, best-selling author Brad Meltzer has created a serial killer who is methodically trying to recreate the crimes of those four assassins with historical accuracy: John Wilkes Booth, Charles Guiteau, Leon Czolgosz and Lee Harvey Oswald. Some of the research for the book was done at The Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring, Maryland, which holds many artifacts and oddities related to presidential assassinations including John Wilkes Booth’s spleen, pieces of the skull of Abraham Lincoln and the probe that was used to remove the bullet from Lincoln’s brain. Meltzer is also the host of the program Decoded on The History Channel.
