With careful and dynamic attention to detail Griffin weaves into the story of Lincoln's death newly discovered historical records written by the head of the United States Secret Service Lafayette Baker during the period of Lincoln's administration. Those records were encoded and hidden by the family of Lincoln's own head of his Secret Service. Now we know much more about his death and the corrupt political intrigue ruling the United States during Lincoln's War to Prevent Southern Independence. This book is a valuable kernel for historians to revisit the history of this war and the changes it brought to American government. This is a fascinating read! I just finished reading this book for the second time.

The author has a subjective agenda to discredit one of the greatest men to ever grace this planet! 'Tis pity he spoils the purported object of the book by forcing the reader to constantly wade through his bias against Lincoln to get to some admittedly riveting revelations about the Government conspiracy to "Execute" him. As ever, money is the root of that evil.He would have been better served by writing two books...though one of them would not be even a "good" seller.
