it was amazing

As many have said, I read this after coming across Manhunt. I found them to be complimentary and not redundant, despite covering the same topic and time period. The highlight of American Brutus, where it excels compared to other Lincoln assassination books I've read thus far, are the details from the aftermath and trials of the co-conspirators. Interesting to read the proceedings, the various verdicts and conditions of those on trial as well as the public reactions.
