Dramatically portraying John Wilkes Booth's brutal crime and pulse-pounding escape, Swanson takes listeners on the unrelenting chase for the killer.

Trying to soothe the stunned nation, federal and local authorities launch a manhunt to capture Lincoln's elusive murderer. At the forefront of this pursuit are celebrated Civil War hero Colonel Everton Conger and his New York Cavalry. But on day 12 of this bizarre hunt, what really happens?… (mer)

Riveting account about Booth's manhunt. Narrative is great and Booth and his coconspirators really come to life. You're taken back to the time and the limitations of conducting a manhunt and all the blunders along the way. ( )

Very well written and detailed account of the hunt for John Wilkes Booth. ( )

Engaging narrative, and covers a topic that a lot of people only know a bit about. Reading an ARC might've been detrimental, here — there were a good number of details Swanson left out, and lots of typos. Some thoughts got lost in the shuffle. ( )

I learned through history classes that John Wilkes Booth was Abraham Lincoln's assassin. What I didn't know is all of the details of the planning of the killing and what took place in the hunt for Booth after the assassination. The details of the killing and the manhunt that followed were written to keep the reader interested to the end. ( )

I read this a long while ago so I can't remember details to review, but I do remember that I loved reading it and was completely fascinated by the story of John Wilkes Booth and his crazy runaway after assassinating Lincoln. ( )

But for the most part the narrative - which relies on numerous first-hand and contemporary accounts, as well as Swanson's own retracing of Booth's steps - has a convincing feel, full of detail and dialogue. Manhunt is an enjoyable, and often exciting, portrayal of what must have been twelve of the most turbulent days in American history

I have never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the Declaration of Independence...that which gave promise that in due time the weights should be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance...Now, my friends, can this country be saved upon that basis?...If it can't be saved upon that principle...if this country cannot be saved without giving up on that principle...I would rather be assassinated on this spot than to surrender it.
--President-elect Abraham Lincoln during a speech on February 22, 1861, ten days before taking the oath of office as the sixteenth president of the United States.
This man's appearance, his pedigree, his coarse jokes and anecdotes, his vulgar similes, and his policy are a disgrace to the seat he holds...he is...the tool of the North, to crush out, or try to crush out slavery, by robbery, rapine, slaughter and bought armies...a false president yearning for a kingly succession...
--John Wilkes Booth to his sister at a private home shortly before President Lincoln's reelection in November 1864.
