As a history major, I wish my required reading had been as well written as this truly vivid and emotionally engaging account of Lincoln's assassination. And as a former combat infantry officer, I found myself running for cover at the Civil War battle scenes. This is the story of an American tragedy that changed the course of history. If you think you know this story, you don't until you've read Killing Lincoln. Add historian to Bill O'Reilly's already impressive résumé. (Nelson DeMille, author of The Lion and The Gold Coast)

This is a hugely entertaining, heart-stopping read. (Vince Flynn, author of American Assassin)
