“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
“Killing Lincoln is a must read historical thriller. Bill O'Reilly recounts the dramatic events of the spring of 1865 with such exhilarating immediacy that you will feel like you are walking the streets of Washington, DC, on the night that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln. This is a hugely entertaining, heart-stopping read.” ―Vince Flynn, author of American Assassin
“If Grisham wrote a novel about April 1865…it might well read like Killing Lincoln.” ―Peter J. Boyer, Newsweek
“[Killing Lincoln] delivers a taut, action-packed narrative with cliff-hangers aplenty...” ―The Christian Science Monitor
“[Killing Lincoln] is nonfiction, albeit told in white-knuckled, John Grisham-like style.” ―New York Post

This book becomes a roller coaster after Lincoln's death in the chase that ensued to capture John Wilkes Booth and his band of merrymen. Then O'Reilly goes on to wrap up each participant and major player with epilogues to their lives. If interested in Lincoln I'd suggest pairing this with any of the other books that distinguish the life of this President.
Book Club Selection
There were many things leading up to Lincoln assasination that either I had forgotten or never knew and this was an entertaining way to learn about it.
I wonder about the accuracy of some things in the book, such as the thoughts or feeling of Booth during his planning of the assination and how Mr. O'Reilly would have possibly known them, but it does make it interesting .
I also like the epilogue to shed light on what happened to the main characters in the story afterward.
I would definitely recommend this.
