The Lincoln conspiracy : a novel

Timothy L. O'Brien.

In the late spring of 1865, as Washington mourns the death of Lincoln, Detective Temple McFadden witnesses a murder at the B&O Railroad Station -- and then makes an even more staggering discovery. In his slain friend's pocket he finds two diaries, one that clearly belongs to Mary Todd Lincoln and one that he learns was penned by John Wilkes Booth. Together, these documents reveal the true depth and reach of the conspiracy behind the assassination.
