This is a fun, fast paced account of the hunt for Lincoln's killer without a lot of depth. Swanson delivers the facts and only the facts. There are a few interesting factoids thrown in--I didn't know there was a Confederate resistance in Canada, for example. It lacks the interpretation I like in a good history book, but it's got the suspense of a true crime novel and may be good for the young 'uns.
