Praise for Killing Lincoln:
“As a history major, I wish my required reading had been as well written as this truly vivid and emotionally engaging account of Lincolns assassination. And as a former combat infantry officer, I found myself running for cover at the Civil War battle scenes. This is the story of an American tragedy that changed the course of history. If you think you know this story, you dont until youve read Killing Lincoln. Add historian to Bill OReillys already impressive résumé.” —Nelson DeMille, author of The Lion and The Gold Coast
“Killing Lincoln is a must read historical thriller. Bill OReilly recounts the dramatic events of the spring of 1865 with such exhilarating immediacy that you will feel like you are walking the streets of Washington DC on the night that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln. This is a hugely entertaining, heart-stopping read.” —Vince Flynn, author of American Assassin
“If Grisham wrote a novel about April 1865 . . . it might well read like Killing Lincoln.” —Peter J. Boyer, Newsweek
“[Killing Lincoln] delivers a taut, action-packed narrative with cliff-hangers aplenty.” —The Christian Science Monitor
“[Killing Lincoln] is nonfiction, albeit told in white-knuckled, John Grisham-like style.” —New York Post
