Book Review – Lincoln’s Assassin, The Unsolicited Confessions of J Wilkes Booth



The author has taken lively and innovative approach to presenting one of the possible diaries of the conspiracy theories that surround the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The book is set out as a play and imagines the unsolicited confessions of an assassin who has escaped, only to emerge many years later. The book layout is appropriate in as much as J Wilkes Booth was an actor who came from a well-known American acting family, and the assassination took place in a box at a theatre.
