From the Publisher:

A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly

The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of incredibly bloody battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. One man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased.

In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington, D.C., John Wilkes Booth—charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theater. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a brilliant but enigmatic New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. With an unforgettable cast of characters, vivid historical detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

Author Bio
Bill O'Reilly
Bill O'Reilly was born of working-class Irish heritage and grew up in Levittown, New York. He attended Marist College and then taught high school. After two years of teaching he enrolled in Boston University, where he got a master's degree in journalism. O'Reilly began a career in journalism and gained nationwide recognition as the host of Inside Edition. THE O'REILLY FACTOR is the name of both his television program and the best selling book of opinions and commentary. O'Reilly also wrote a thriller called THOSE WHO TRESPASS, about a detective who teams up with a female newscaster. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was invited to pursue post-graduate study at Harvard's prestigious John Kennedy School of Government.

Praise

"Cable-news talking head O'Reilly . . . and historian Dugard . . . serve up a sensational, true-crime account of one of the most shocking murders in American history. . . . An entertaining tale that neither adds to the vast bulk of Lincoln scholarship nor challenges the established theories of Booth's plot and the subsequent trial of the conspirators." 09/01/2011
