Paul Boehmer's narration starts inside the head of a detective who sees a stabbing at the train station, which escalates in intensity as he tries to intervene. This thriller's plot concerns the diaries of John Wilkes Booth and Mary Todd Lincoln, and a cabal that wants them. O'Brien excels at recreating the atmosphere of Washington, D.C., in the days after President Lincoln's assassination. Boehmer handles both the action and the details that build the setting with equal ease. He creates a wide cast of interesting characters, including the real-life figures Allan Pinkerton and Sojourner Truth. It's a breezy listen that injects a good dose of history.
