Synopsis: Dr. Jaime Fraser is called to the death bed of former Congressman John Bingham. Thinking that he is simply there to do his job, things turn strange when the Congressman begins to tell a very strange story. One that surrounds the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Is this simply end of life delirium or is there truth to this story that he needs to get off his chest before meeting his maker?
Although Congressman Bingham has taken the truth to the grave with him, Dr. Fraser can't let it go and is determined to get to the truth. Will the truth cost him his life and the sanity of the Republic?
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: I found this to be a really creative and fun story about a potential conspiracy to the Lincoln assassination. Loved the mixture of true events with "fake characters". Gave a new fictional "twist" to the non-fiction books I have read on the event without being too far-fetched. As there have been numerous conspiracy theories into the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, one could actually see this occurring.
I loved the slow release of the mystery of this book and the "realness" of Dr. Jaime Fraser, a simple physician, thrust into the mystery.
Lincoln enthusiasts, such as myself, will eat this up!
