Wow! This is a great read! Swanson has done an absolutely incredible job putting together the facts from various sources which are now available. This is the most incredible book about the Lincoln assasination and subsequent search for Booth I have read! Fantastic!
I have to agree with the other reviewers on this book. I've been to the museums regarding the event but Swanson does an excellent job describing the events that transpired before and after the assassination and really brings them strongly to the reader. After reading this book I feel it is remarkable they caught Booth at all. One would think that Swanson's extensive research would lead to a dry book but he has crafted an exciting story that anyone can follow and enjoy.
Very informative book on Booth's movements before and after Lincoln's assassination. New material I had never read before. Starts a little slow but quickly grabs the reader. You have a hard time putting the book down. Author put his hours, days, years in to write this book! Highly recommend!
Manhunt sucks you into the 1860's and the death of the President from the first page.
You feel as though you are running the back streets away from Ford Theater along with JW Booth. You feel the dampness of the river and the smell of the weeds as Booth and his supporter slink to escape to the South where they feel certain they will be congratulated. Get to know the twisted mind of Booth as you never did in history classes of your youth.
