Lawyer and historian Jonathan Putnam has written a historical legal mystery that features Abraham Lincoln as part of a crime detection team in Springfield Illinois in 1837. Lincoln defends a doctor accused of murdering his lover, as well as her niece and nephew. Narrator Lloyd James presents the young Lincoln as folksy, compassionate, and wise to the ways of the court system. As Lincoln, James speaks in a clearly enunciated, slightly high-pitched voice with just a trace of a Kentucky accent. James's other voices seem equally suited to the vibrant characters, including the slave owner Joshua Speed, a real-life friend of Lincoln. This audiobook is a good mix of historical fact and fast- paced fiction. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
