Review:

"Huffington Post editor O'Brien (Bad Bet) fails to make the most of a promising premise in his fiction debut, a thriller set in the spring of 1865. When Washington, D.C., police detective Temple McFadden retrieves a package carried by a courier he knows shortly after the man's throat is cut at the B&O train station, McFadden is stunned to discover that it contains two diaries — one written by the just widowed Mary Todd Lincoln, and the other the apparent work of John Wilkes Booth himself. A cursory reading of both suggests that there was more to the plot to murder the president than the official account would have the public believe. The policeman finds himself caught between powerful competing forces, each with their own reasons for getting access to the documents. O'Brien offers an intriguing theory for the motive behind the assassination, but readers will find more suspense in George O'Toole's similarly themed The Cosgrove Report. Agent: Andrew Blauner, Blauner Books Literary. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Timothy L. O’Brien is the executive editor of the Huffington Post, where he edited the 2012 Pulitzer Prize–winning series about severely wounded war veterans, “Beyond the Battlefield.” Previously, he was an editor and reporter at The New York Times. There, he helped to lead a team of Times reporters that was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in Public Service in 2009 for coverage of the financial crisis. The Times series that emerged from that work, “The Reckoning,” was also a winner of a Loeb Award for Distinguished Business Journalism. O’Brien lives in Montclair, New Jersey, with his wife and two children.
