In 1856 Abraham Lincoln was a former congressman who had grown bored with his work as a lawyer, until he was drawn into the murder case that would define his career.

Not so hot

While I found this book somewhat interesting, I do not understand why the publisher claims that the Anderson case 'defined his career'. The sideline plots (completely unrelated to the case) gives yet another review of how the Republica party came to be.

Not what it was advertised to be

I found that there really wasn't anything in this book that I didn't already know and it really wasn't about the murder case so much as it was about the formation of the Republican Party. Pretty dry at that.
