Publisher's summary

On the night of April 14th 1865, President Abraham Lincoln attended a performance at the Ford Theatre, in Washington. A single shot fired by John Wilkes Booth hit the President in the back of the head. He slumped to the floor, and died a few hours later without recovering consciousness. Was Booth a lone assassin? Or was he part of a wider conspiracy? A plot to replace Lincoln with General Ulysses S. Grant?

Assassination

We are all aware of the drama of Booth's assassination of Lincoln following the Civil War, but unless one is a serious student thereof, a lot of the details are no more than outline points. This book is fiction and posits that one of the plotters kept a journal of his wartime activities. An engaging and rapidy-moving tale, extremely well-narrated by John J. Irwin.
