Pub. Date:
This is the first book about Lincoln's murder to examine all aspects of the plot and conspirators in detail. Karen Zeinert uses first-person sources such as courtroom testimony, letters, and Booth's diary to knit together the motives and relationships of those involved; their probable guilt or those involved; their probable guilt or innocence; what did and did not happen. This book is a true detective story. It gives a close look at a period of turmoil in our history, and how a society in straits reacted to a cataclysmic event. And, finally, readers may want to judge for themselves: Was justice really served in the aftermath of Lincoln's assassination?
