President Lincoln, Mary Surratt and a Secret That Could Destroy the Republic

Debut novel by acclaimed historian David O. Stewart, THE LINCOLN DECEPTION, explores unanswered questions about Lincoln assassination conspiracy.

THE LINCOLN DECEPTION, is the first work of fiction by distinguished historian David O. Stewart. The DaVinci Code for the Lincoln assassination, David O. Stewart’s debut novel combines historical and fictional characters to explore the dark forces behind the John Wilkes Booth conspiracy and solve one of the most intriguing puzzles in American history.

The author of the award-winning nonfiction American history books American Emperor, Impeached and The Summer of 1787, David O. Stewart’s background as an historian very much informs THE LINCOLN DECEPTION. Stewart explores the truth behind the mystery through his impeccably-researched novel’s central characters – a white doctor from small-town Ohio and an African-American ex-ballplayer – as they puzzle over the fragmentary evidence of the Booth conspiracy in the year 1900. Facing a mugging on an Indiana riverside, a race riot in New York City, and a terrifying trap atop the new Williamsburg Bridge, the unlikely partners Fraser and Cook investigate questions that have churned at the heart of the Lincoln conspiracy for nearly 150 years.

Blending real and fictional characters, THE LINCOLN DECEPTION is a superbly researched, gripping mystery that explores one of the nation’s darkest and most fascinating eras and the conspiracy that changed world history.

Available from Kensington Books.
