For those who are interested in the history of America, Killing Lincoln is an excellent book. It does not deal specifically with Lincoln's aaasasination, it also delves into aspects of the Civil War and the lives of those involved with this terrible murder.

Another great book from Bill O'Reilly
O'Reilly's insight into all the details leading up to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln shows the research detail that went into writing this book. I learned things I had never learned in History class from this book.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-08-15 Political commentator O'Reilly and coauthor Dugard (Into Africa: The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingston) take on the "most spectacular assassination conspiracy in the history of man" in the form of a thriller in this rendition of Lincoln's murder. Ponderous foreshadowing and innuendo produce a tedious read, even as they enable the authors to resurrect a theory that secretary of war Stanton was involved in the conspiracy to kill the president, vice-president, and secretary of state. They concede the contention has been "repudiated and dismissed by the vast majority of trained historians," and yet allude to it frequently. Inaccuracies (e.g., ignoring a 2010 study of King Tut's mummy showing he died of disease, not assassination) and anachronisms (e.g., referring to Grant's "photograph" in newspapers although until the 1880s only engravings were possible) mar the account. Well-documented and equally riveting histories are available for readers interested in Lincoln's assassination; this one shows how spin can be inserted into a supposedly "no spin American story."
