I'm with Cook and some of the reviewers of this book: I know Fraser is a small-town doctor who hasn't gotten around much, but he is so incredibly naïve through most of this book you want to shake him. Picture this: you're investigating someone who you think was behind a Presidential death. The dude says, "Hey, I have an errand to run at [this dangerous place]. Why not come with me?" and Fraser just goes. (He pays for it, too, but acquits himself quite nicely. But after that he keeps believing people!) Speed Cook, of course, who's been brought up not to trust anyone, especially if they're white, should have brought a leash.
Not a bad mystery, unfolds slowly, Fraser and Cook both nice guys, but Fraser is clueless about what Cook goes through as a person of color (as really he would, as white people were brought up in a world apart). A little dull, but I am going to read the rest of the books.
I enjoyed Speed Cook's (former baseball player's) role in this book, even though in real life, he never would have gone on this adventure, he definitely added some color to the conversation...making us rethink how we think. He was a very strong character that really helped Dr. Fraser (a naive doctor from Ohio) grow.
If you're a history buff, if you like historical figures taking on a fictional role and meeting with other historical figures to create a new tale of why Lincoln was assassinated...this is the book for you.
What if there was a larger conspiracy behind the assassination?? How far did it stretch? Who all was involved? What are the stakes? And 30+ years later: can they unravel it??
This is fine historical fiction with a couple of very life-like protagonists who give us a look at the larger world of the US at that time, as well as the smaller look-ins on the lives and character of the people actually living those times....and the times before.
Stewart is an author of American History and provides a real thriller with a goodly amount of detail even I --as something of a Civil War buff-- was quite unfamiliar with. Great yarn and I'd recommend---Yes!
All in all, considering I only paid something like $3.00 for "The Lincoln Deception" ( I got free shipping for being a Prime Member) it passed the time.
