post civil war conspiracy

the first time i read this book i was pleasantly surprised. i had the first part of the story sitting in my kindle app for a few months before i decided to read it. i'm not a big western fan but had enjoyed Legendarium so thought i'd give this a try. i loved it and downloaded the full novel. this book will appeal to history buffs, conspiracy theorists, and scifi / fantasy fans as well. this is a great conspiracy theory story; it's a concise, well-written story which did well as an audiobook. there were no awkward pauses by the reader, and the slight drawl in the narrator's accent complimented the story telling atmosphere.

A Conspiratorial Tale of the American West

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Anyone who enjoys the spirit of the old west and the intrigue of conspiracy and the paranormal should definitely pick this book up.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Man Who Shot John Wilkes Booth?

This book punched me in the stomach more than once. I wasn't ready for some of the twists. Kevin Summers isn't afraid to break tropes.

What about Clay Lomakayu’s performance did you like?

He sounded like he was telling the tale by campfire, just a perfect fit for a western.
