"Takes a little-known true story about the FIRST plot to kill Abraham Lincoln and turns it into a first-rate nonfiction thriller. Filled with amazing American history, secret societies, incredible research, and a shocking conspiracy to murder Abraham Lincoln at the dawn of his presidency. A brilliant combination of edge-of-your-seat history and superb storytelling." - James L. Swanson, bestselling author of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer
"Think you know everything about Abraham Lincoln? Well, think again. The Lincoln Conspiracy not only revitalizes history, it transforms it, turning its principal player into a flesh and blood defender of everything the republic stands for, and the target of a malevolent cabal that went awry long before the ill-fated night at Ford's Theatre. Fantastic. You'll never look at Abraham Lincoln the same way again." - Les Standiford, bestselling author of Last Train to Paradise & Meet You in Hell

A must-read!" - Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University and author of American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race.
"Abraham Lincoln. Secret Societies. A deadly plot. And it all really happened! You won't be getting any sleep tonight. This book is dynamite. Meltzer does it again. History at its very best." - Brian Kilmeade, bestselling author of Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers--This text refers to the library edition.

There are so many "rhyming" lessons in history. When I hear people say that "nothing like this has ever happened", I know they haven't studied history. Brad brings out both the bitterness and partisan political divide of the 1860s and also the little known first plot to kill Lincoln before he even took office. As always, what matters in the participants is their character and courage. I knew some of Allan Pinkerton's personal background but nothing about Kate Warne, his 26 year old employee who becomes America's first female detective.
What a great thriller to be brought to life by a great author. Thank You Brad! (And Josh Mensch).
As you read, you learn remarkable insights about Abraham Lincoln. Toward the end of the book, the well-known African American journalist Frederick Douglass meets President Lincoln at the White House. “As Douglass approached and was introduced to the President, Lincoln rose and extended his hand to welcome him. “At once I felt myself in the presence of an honest man,” Douglass wrote, “one whom I could love, honor, and trust without reserve or doubt.” (Page 357) I loved the writing and found the story engaging. I recommend THE LINCOLN CONSPIRACY – particularly if you enjoy learning about some unusual history.
