Great story of the trying times in Lincoln’s presidency!
I knew like most, of course, about Abraham Lincoln and his assassination, but I didn't know about this previous/original plan to assassinate him so this was very enlightening.
I enjoyed how well this was written and narrated. It was a lot like a fast-paced suspense/thriller read and I've never enjoyed listening or learning about history quite as much as with this. It was a lot more intriguing and enticing to me listening to this than other history stories that are usually a bit more dry and boring sometimes.
I loved hearing about and learning more about the secret society and the undercover detectives, Pinkerton, and his lady detectives. I've heard about Pinkerton before but didn't realize his role in stopping this assassination attempt on Lincoln so it was very illuminating to me to learn about this incident from history.
This also makes me a little more curious about Pinkerton and the lady detectives as well as Lincoln because the way they described and talked about them made them more real. They sound much more real with their engaging personalities and senses of humor and everything. It brought more of history to life when listening to this story for me and it was fabulous.
If you're interested in Lincoln, knowing more about him, this assassination attempt or anything with this bit of history then take a listen to this because this audiobook, the story, and the narration are amazing.
I received an advanced listening copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
Brilliant snapshot of history through which to view our present-day struggles.
