The best Audible purchase I've made in 2 years
This book is as captivating as any modern day thriller. The story is so compelling - such an exciting mix of truth and fiction - that I listened to the story while I searched the web for the facts of Lincoln's assassination. The author has not left out any details of this important event, and even knowing the outcome, will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Perfect for both the history buff and thriller reader.
Edward Hermann, Tony award-winning actor, provides perfect narration.
The only flaw to this book is the overly-dramatic music which is, thankfully, sporadic, but is distracting.

Booth is a Disappointment
When I downloaded this, I thought I was downloading a historical account of John Surratt. Instead, what I discovered this to be is a Novel -- a fictional account of John Surratt reminiscing over his friendship with President Lincoln's assassin which wanders far from the actual truth.
My two-star rating is more a low rating of Audible, as they fail to alert the listener that this is a work of fiction rather than a work of historical value. BUYER BEWARE!
The character development is weak, although the storyline, as a Novel, is somewhat intriguing.
Edward Herrmann is, as always, extremely good.
