I've read a number of books on Lincoln, Team of Rivals, April 1865, Manhunt, Grant and Sherman, Bloody Crimes, etc, and by far the most comprehensive account of the assassination that I have read to date. Great read and kept my interest throughout the read even though I knew the outcome.

This ebook was great. I could hardly put it down. It was better than I could have imagined. My wife is now going to read it. Thanks Bill!

The authors provide a behind the scenes look at the conspiracy resulting in Lincoln's assination. We also see Lincoln near the end of the civil war as Commander-in-Chief.The book surpisingly reads like a murder mystery even though the outcome is obvious at the beginning. A well writen book that is very entertaining.

Been out for a while and everyone who reads it can't put it down. The ending is amazing. Get it.

Killing Lincoln was as suspenseful as a John Grishams books (and I've read all 23 of them)!! Not only was the book well written it was full of suspense and drama. I've had the pleasure of visiting Springfield, Ill and going to the final resting place of Lincoln so reading the book made my trip all that more special. While I was reading it, I felt as if I was walking the streets of Richmond. It was that good! I read it in 3 days (I do have a 2y/o toddler to care for) otherwise I would have finished in a day! I couldn't wait to get back to reading as the suspense was killing me! My husband in an Active Soldier serving our great nation for 12 years now 3 of them deployed overseas one of which resulting in a Purple Heart. When I told him what I was reading, he was very excited as I seldom make a history book my choice for reading. I'm glad I did! Kudos Mr. O'Riley on a great book! Wish I could have had the extra $$$ to get one signed from you for my husband for Christmas!

God Bless America... Home of the FREE because of the BRAVE!!!!

Hello

I have read a lot about my favorite President, Abraham Lincoln, but this book brings other facets of his life and times that is really a book you should recommend to all.

This book is one of the best non-fiction books I've read in a long time. It's factual without being boring. I believe it could be used in schools as part of a history lesson. I learned so much about Lincoln and the last days of the Civil War. I recommend everyone reading it.

Having read other O'Reilly books, this one read more like a novel than nonfiction. The sentence at the ending of each chapter was so compelling I had to go to the next one. Now I will have to order Killing Kennedy and Killing Jesus.
