  1. ***Spoiler***

    Lincoln doesn’t die in this book and if you didn’t read Civil War you won’t know what happens here. You might also want to pick up Lincoln:Memorial, it’s a lead in to Battle for the Big Tall Hat.

  2. Rick Geary is not only a class act, but he’s one helluva talented guy! We’ve had him in our store and I’ve spoken with him at conventions as well and have always been impressed with what a kind, intelligent, warm person he is. The true tales of Victorian Murder books are all thoroughly researched
    and well drawn. You really can’t go wrong with any of them, but “The Murder of Abraham Lincoln” is a personal favorite of mine. Please put down the superhero stuff for a while and check Mr. Geary’s books out. I guarantee you that you will be impressed.
