I just finished Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard. Wow! Reading this book was like reading a Tom Clancy thriller. The reader is literally on the front lines of the Civil War – and standing in silent witness in the wings of the President’s private box for the chilling and tragic denouement that took place at Ford’s Theater on Good Friday, April 14, 1865. A few nitpicky critics pointed out that there were four minor inaccuracies and two typeset errors in the first edition. These were corrected in subsequent printings. Killing Lincoln has sold over one million copies and soared to number 2 on the New York Times bestseller list for non-fiction. It remained for weeks as number 1 – on the New York Times E-Book non-fiction list.
I had asked for this book for Christmas – and Santa Claus did not disappoint. If you want a truly fascinating read — that will grip you from start to finish — get – and read – Killing Lincoln. It is truly five star. And the profits go to charity.
