O'Brien imagines the aftermath of Lincoln's assassination and considers a conspiracy beyond the one history has documented - someone pays or otherwise persuades Booth and his henchmen to do the job for reasons other than those that drove the Civil War. The conspiracy theory is plausible but weak and O'Brien spends far too much time on the backstories of the several people he introduces.

The audio version of this book was read by the same person who read "The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln" which I listened to not long ago. I kept wondering what characters from that book were doing in this book. Of course, some of the historical figures were in both books. Plus Stanton comes across as the man in both.
