THE ASSASSIN'S ACCOMPLICE Mary Surratt and the Plot to Kill Abraham Lincoln

by | Read by Laural Merlington

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

John Wilkes Booth did not act alone; eight people were eventually indicted as co-conspirators in Lincoln's murder. Accounts of their lives, nefarious plots, and historical trial fill this audiobook with the details true-crime and Civil War aficionados love. Narrator Laural Merlington reads with a forceful expression, modulating her word emphasis and tone to keep the listener's attention level during the prosecution high and the final moments on the scaffold riveting. Although she sometimes gives a gruff snarl for men and a female squeak for women, Merlington's own distinct voice usually prevails. Because the principal conspirator, Mary Surratt, was a woman, having a female narrator brings a credible authenticity to Mary's words—and to her screams as she approaches the stairs of the gallows.
