Title: Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer (P.S.)

Author: James L. Swanson

KDL Description:


Dramatically portraying John Wilkes Booth’s brutal crime and pulse-pounding escape, Swanson takes listeners on the unrelenting chase for the killer. Having sacrificed his wealth and theatrical legacy for a single bullet, the frantic Booth flees from D.C.’s streets, through Maryland’s marshes, and into Virginia’s woodlands. Trying to soothe the stunned nation, federal and local authorities launch a manhunt to capture Lincoln’s elusive murderer.

Amazon Description:

The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin, John Wilkes Booth, led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.
