About This Book

Based on rare archival material, obscure trial manuscripts, and interviews with relatives of the conspirators and the manhunters, Chasing Lincoln's Killer is a fast-paced thriller about the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth: a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia. This book, based on Swanson's adult bestseller, "Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer," is a true account for young readers about John Wilkes Booth's assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States.

* "...the rich details and suspense are ever present. Excellent black-and-white illustrations complement the text. Readers will be engrossed by the almost hour-by-hour search and by the many people who encountered the killer as he tried to escape. It is a tale of intrigue and an engrossing mystery. With the approaching bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth, this is a most welcome addition to all libraries." — School Library Journal, starred review

"Swanson provides a fast-paced account of the assassination of the sixteenth president. Though Booth remains his principal focus, the author cuts cinematically among the actions of the other conspirators... Swanson's colorful account will hold readers’ interest throughout." — Booklist

"Readers will find the list of the people involved a terrific help in keeping track of the large cast of characters. The sequence of events leading up to and following the assassination is meticulously detailed." — Kirkus Reviews
