I consider myself a fairly astute history scholar and thought I knew all there was to know about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. However, I didn't! This book is a great read, written so that you are absorbing all the "dry details" without realizing it...because it is written like a mystery novel. Everyone from age 12 and up should read this fascinating book. You will be truly amazed at all the details of the time and the event. Great for students studying this period in history; great for a curl-up-and-read winter's night; just plain great!

Bill O'Reilly is trading on his name...NOT WRITING HISTORY!

I was given both "Killing" books (Bought by an elderly friend from Amazon...with all good intentions.) I scanned one book then sent them BOTH to Goodwill. I do not take my history from hucksters!

A far,far better handling of the Lincoln subject was written by a REAL writer in the early eighties: "The Day Lincoln Was Shot" by Jim Bishop. It, also, is available from Amazon.

From his ignorant campaign against Dr. Tiller in Wichita to his obvious contempt for President Obama, I have seen nothing but rate-inflating pandering to the lowest minds in the Fox audience from O'Reilly. The cover of a book does not tell the whole yory. Sometimes it is important to understand where the writer stands...and where he falls!

Purchased this after reading reviews and prior to seeing the "Lincoln" movie (which had some inaccuracies) and have been so surprised. It reads like a novel and makes history come to life. I'm having a hard time putting it down when I have to. Supposedly it will be presented on the National Geographic Channel in February. Can't wait. So far, I've not found errors.

this was one of the best books I have read. I never knew most of the history surrounding Lincoln's assination, but this book brought it all to life. If you want to understand more about this event, READ this book!
