This book was an interesting historical fiction read set in the aftermath of the Lincoln assassination. Two diaries are uncovered: one from Mary Todd Lincoln and the other from John Wilkes Boothe. The diaries present an interesting historical alternatives and make for an interesting read. I really enjoyed the characters of the fictional detective and his wife. They are lively, interesting and go against the grain of the times. It makes for a nice contrast to the unveiling mystery.
An enjoyable read for those who love mysteries and historical fiction.
