In this brief examination, the author asserts that John Wilkes Booth and his small band acted on behalf of a cabal of powerful characters who wanted our sixteenth president dead. His evidence by no means convinces, but he at least keeps us interested with fascinating character profiles and a lively writing style. Dan Cashman sounds as if he were reading one phrase at a time, leaving inexplicable pauses between punctuation marks. He frequently mispronounces unfamiliar names and terms. Though he reads the sense of his lines with comprehension, he fails to give them much animation. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
