This book is a historical fiction book about the tragedy of President Lincoln's death. It uses evidence to help find the killer and hopefully convict him. There is a side story to it that I really enjoyed because it reminded me of when my grandparents tell me stories about their lives.
A boy gets a book that is about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, in the Ford's Theater. The assassin was upset that the Confederate Army lost the Civil War, so he shot the president.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes sitting on the edge of their seat in suspense. You will not want to stop reading this book! Action and history together!
