Was John Wilkes Booth truly the mastermind behind the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and the plot to murder other members of his administration, or were other more powerful forces pulling the strings behind the scenes?

Blending real and fictional characters, lawyer-turned-author David O. Stewart commemorates Lincoln’s Birthday with a discussion of his new work of historical fiction, The Lincoln Deception. Superbly researched and brilliantly plotted, this thoroughly gripping mystery explores one of the nation’s darkest and most fascinating eras and the conspiracy that changed world history.

Stewart is the author of books on Andrew Johnson and Aaron Burr.
