    Extremely Well Researched and Enthralling

    A fascinating book. For every mystery included, Paul Aron thoroughly embraces the different possible solutions and point of views expressed by prominent figures, historians, and journalists. Support for each solution is given so the reader can ultimately draw his/her own conclusion. The mysteries are extensively researched and titles of other works concerning the individual cases are provided for further investigation. Paul Aron also gives a short review of each of the other works too, which were interesting to read. The mysteries take place throughout American history and don't focus just on one time period. The only part of this book I found to be misleading is the cover. The cover of this edition shows an image of Lincoln's assassination, when that isn't one of the mysteries included. Overall, I'd say it's a great book for any history lover.
