Chasing Lincoln's killer

Categories: Non-fiction

"Chasing Lincoln's Killer" is a wonderfully written piece of narrative nonfiction (it's a true story that reads like a novel). The author tells the story of President Lincoln's (1809-1965) assassination and the chase to find his killer, John Wilkes Booth as well as his co-conspirators in Washington, Maryland, and Virginia who helped him escape and evade capture for 12 days before being surrounded in a barn and killed.

The story is fast-paced and engrossing. Anyone interested Lincoln's assassination and the hunt for Booth will enjoy this book.
