Product Description
A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly

The book recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history-how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of incredibly bloody 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, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. One man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased.

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 Theater. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a brilliant but enigmatic New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions-including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. With an unforgettable cast of characters, vivid historical detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

You grabbed me with the first sentence of the prologue 'The man with six weeks to live is anxious' drew me in and never let me go.

One of the best books ever written on Lincoln I have ever read. I found it impossible to put down once I started reading it. An exciting and interesting work. Keep the series coming Bill.

I recently visited Washington D. C. and visited Ford's Theater and the museum therein. Intrigued, I ordered KILLING LINCOLN to fill out the story. It gave a great account of the events of the last days of the civil war and the events leading up to and after the assassination of Lincoln. A great historical account!
