Bill O'Reilly anchors the highest-rated U.S. cable news show and has written several bestsellers, but this labor of love is his first book on American history. For a subject, this Civil War era buff selected perhaps the most dramatic episode in our national annals: the April 1865 assassination of Abraham Lincoln. To this sudden unfolding catastrophe, O'Reilly and historian co-author Martin Dugard lend a vivid sense of the new euphoria of post-war Washington suddenly broken by the first presidential assassination and the frantic hunt of identify and capture his killers. History that reads like a thriller.
