Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed historical novelist Max Byrd delivers a riveting account of America's secret mission to track down the conspirators in Lincoln's assassination. The Sixth Conspirator is both a fascinating spy story and irresistible love story.

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln set off a hysterical burst of international conspiracy theories, with all eyes turning first to Canada - once a hotbed of Confederate plots - and then, as evidence mounted, to the Catholic Church and Rome.

Now from best-selling author Max Byrd, comes a long forgotten true story: a confidential mission to track down and capture any Europeans (and fugitive Confederates) who may have aided John Wilkes Booth. Drawn from State Department archives and personal letters and diaries, The Sixth Conspirator recounts the dramatic journey of George H. Sharpe, General Ulysses S. Grant's real-life spymaster, to three European capitals.

Along the way Byrd creates a panorama of wonderfully-realized characters, great and small, fictional and real. In deeply researched, fascinating historical detail, he carries us back to another reality-the far away mid-19th century world from which our America slowly emerged.

Okay Book Ruined By Inept Narrator

Do not get this audiobook. Read it or skip it.

Much of this story occurs abroad, especially in France. Sadly, the narrator is utterly unfamiliar with the pronunciation of French, Italian -- or, indeed, of a good many English words. The effect is to utterly ruin a good but not great book,

I will leave it to others to describe and comment on the content of the book. My intention in this review is to warn of the dreadful narration of this audio production.
