The Lincoln Conspiracy: A Novel by Timothy L. O'Brien
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads.
In the Spring of 1865, as America mourns the death of President Abraham Lincoln, a shocking discovery is made. Police detective Temple McFadden stumbles upon two diaries that together reveal the true story behind the Lincoln assassination.
With many people after the diaries, Temple's quest to bring the conspirators to justice endangers his life as well of the lives of his wife and friends. Temple's journey to the truth takes him through the Civil War-era capital district, into bawdy houses and back alleys where he struggles to remain one step ahead of the enemies that await him at every turn.
With an interesting and diverse cast of characters this story follows many twists toward a climax that may leave readers gasping.
The author did a fantastic job making his characters believable.
The story was well developed and I enjoyed reading it, although at times it did seem to drag a bit. Overall, this was a great story that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good conspiracy theory.
