    Very interesting

    Very interesting from a "spy" perspective. A side of the war not otherwise chronicled.

    Historical?

    I thoroughly enjoy the style in which the famous detective writes, but sometimes find it bothersome how he obviously creates conversations his "operatives" have. There is no way that they would be able to detail to him word for word and action for action everything that he states - at least not back in the 1800's. I believe that he's telling the overall truth from his perspective, but I question the validity of much of the content of this book. Still an enjoyable read, whether some of it's made up or not.

    Interesting revelation about a first assassination plot

    This book was really cool in that it had first-hand account of one of the private detectives who was responsible for looking after Lincoln. The Baltimore assassination plot almost happened, if it weren't for Allan Pikerton's spies who infiltrated the group.

    Other stories also uncovered some little known Civil War secrets. If you like uncensored history, you'll like this book.
