bLOCKBUSTER BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND 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, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased.
“If you think you know this story, you don’t until you’ve read Killing Lincoln.”—Nelson DeMille
In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington, D.C., John Wilkes Booth—charismatic ladies’ man and impenitent racist—murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country’s most wanted fugitive. Featuring some of history’s most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.
