The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes.

I especially liked way the book was written; the mix of history with story telling. It was like a history book meets a novel. If all hisrtory books were written in this format, I might have actually paid attention in history class and retained the information.

I can't wait for Bill O'Reilly's next book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Lincoln?

The buildup to the actual assassination of Lincoln; it was very riveting. I also enjoyed finding out the relationship between Lincoln and the First Lady.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Bill O'Reilly?

I love Bill O'Reillly, but the narration was a little dry. I think it would be more exciting, as the book is very exciting, if narrated by someone with a little more enthusiasm. It didn't exactly take awway from the story, it just made it a little less dramatic.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Killing Lincoln: The final stage call.

Any additional comments?

It would make a great movie.

A killer is at work in the nation's capital, and he seems to like variety. His victims range from kindergarten students to senators - not even the President is safe. Alex Cross, hero of Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls, is awakened one night to confront the brutal murder of a little girl only blocks away from his house. With a single clue, a mysterious rhyme signed "Jack and Jill", the skilled and courageous Cross sets out to track the murderer.

Any additional comments?

James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. His stories always grab you from the first page and you don't want to put it down until you're finished; and then you can't wait to read the next one. I don't get a chance to read as often as I like, so being able to listen to the Alex Cross series on audible is a perfect way for me to catch up. This series in particular is my favorite. At the end of each book you want more; it's like an addiction. Jack and Jill is just as engrossing as Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls. James Patterson and Alex Cross never disappoints.
