Editorial Reviews

“Entertaining…Excels at painting a convincing portrait of the younger Lincoln.” Publishers Weekly
“With Speed as an adroit and sensitive narrator, this fourth entry in the Lincoln and Speed mysteries continues to bring to life the legendary Lincoln, seen here as legislator, lawyer, and suitor. With impressive research, Putnam fashions his fiction around actual events and fills it with actual characters. A fine historical mystery.” Booklist
