Lively writing and lively reading make THE HOUR OF PERIL worth hearing—even for those who feel overwhelmed by everything Honest Abe. Daniel Stashower chronicles the unsuccessful plot to assassinate Lincoln as he traveled through Baltimore on his way to his first inauguration. Famous detective Allan Pinkerton and the country’s first female private eye, Kate Warne, play prominent roles in the story. Narrator Edoardo Ballerini’s performance fits well with the author’s thriller-style approach to the story. Ballerini does an excellent job of using inflection to differentiate between Stashower’s writing and quotes from other documents, such as books and newspapers.
