    A compelling & Intriguing Analysis of a Monumental Conspiracy!

    I recommend -- five stars up, ¿Lincoln¿s Assassins: Their Trial & Execution.¿ For this genre, Swanson & Weinberg have set a new standard of excellence. It is about events that occurred after the assassination and burial of President Abraham Lincoln. While the plot may be morbid for some ¿ nonetheless, it is enticing for anyone searching for truth, justice, and a good-old-fashion read. The writing is vividly done, the photographs are mesmerizing, and the documentary evidence: overwhelming in presentation and abundance. Those who study numerology might find it interesting that James Swanson and President Lincoln were born on the same day. Like many successful entrepreneurs, Mr. Swanson discovered at an early age, his passion in life. He started collecting artifacts about President Lincoln when he was ten years old. Since becoming an investor in many companies, I know the importance of mergers, compatibility, and symbiotic relationships. Consequently, it was amusing to discover Daniel Weinberg has been the owner of a book store for more than thirty years that specialized in books dealing with President Lincoln. Even though the events took place more than one hundred thirty years ago, the authors have compiled evidence and supporting materials in a way I could still feel the suspense, drama, and intrigue that was evidently experienced by those living during this historical period. Napoleon Bonaparte once said: ¿A picture is worth a thousand words.¿ If you accept this premise, you will love this book as there are scores of photographs (along with eloquently done text) that help the reader form a compelling, and coherent analysis of events that transpired more than one hundred thirty years ago. Chapter four is the beginning of the conspiracy trial, which was unprecedented in so many ways. Presided over by President Andrew Johnson - it was initially going to be conducted in secret. At the last moment, compromises were made to allow selected people to attend. The book reads like an episode of ¿24 (the television hit). Each page is tantalizing, breathtaking, and thought-provoking. One of the eight facing execution was Mary Surratt. The human drama, suspense, and turmoil involving her part in the plot, kept me riveted, intrigued, and captivated. The book is exceptional and has my highest recommendation. Reginald V. Johnson, author, ¿How To Be Happy, Successful, And Rich¿
