Geary’s Lincoln in School Library Journal

“The concise narrative incorporates diverse threads and is packed with details that will mesmerize readers—Lincoln’s prophetic dream of his own death, John Wilkes Booth’s careful and cold-blooded preparations, the identification of the perpetrator’s body after his death by the initials he had carved into his right hand as a child. Geary also raises questions that still go unanswered, such as the fate of pages missing from Booth’s journal. Filled with crystal-clear maps and realistic architectural renderings, the precise pen-and-ink drawings depict the events with drama and a chilling sense of realism. Readers will find this book impossible to put down and may just head to library shelves for more information (Gr 7 Up).”

So says Joy Fleishhacker of School Library Journal of our bringing back both editions of Geary’s The Murder of Abraham Lincoln. (scroll down) on the occasion of Lincoln’s 200th anniversary.
