Throwback thriller

Imagine , for a moment, that Booth’s shot was not fatal and that Lincoln survived, only to face the ire of Congress for his conduct of the war. That is the premise of Stephen Carter’s gripping historical thriller, The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln. It has all the drama of a high stakes trial, plus an added touch of suspense when one of Lincoln’s lawyers is murdered. This is an”engaging what-if that has the virtue of being plausible” (Kirkus Reviews). Check out other throwback classics on our display in the reading room.
