    This was a lot of fun, and a real page-turner. I have a weakness for mysteries set in the past, and this one didn't disappoint. I'm not going to write much here because it would be hard not to spill the spoilers, but it was well researched, engaging, and the period well captured. Recommended not just for mystery fans, but readers who enjoy a Civil War setting or are Lincoln fans. I received this book as a giveaway from the publisher at BEA 2017 i...

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. It's President Lincoln's Inaugural Ball and the room is filled with people, both supportive and non-supportive. This gives Adam Quinn, a long list of possible suspects when a murder is committed. Lincoln has had so many death threats that his staff can't be sure if he was really meant to be the intended victim. Adam is determined to find out just who the killer is .
