Another great read about our famous 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. Well, it's less about Lincoln, and more about his killer, the infamous John Wilkes Booth. Booth was a star in his day, having been in many big stage productions. He was a name well known throughout the east coast and especially in Washington D.C. So him murdering Lincoln would be like Brad Pitt murdering the President.

The book reads a lot like a mystery/thriller. It explains why Booth did it, and follows him and his co-conspirators as they try to escape the lawmen and army hunting them. You will also learn about the other attempted assassinations that night and how they were able to fight off or avoid the murderers.
Very compelling true story for fans of action, mystery, and drama
