Aided by an underground network of friends--and by his wife, Fiona, a nurse who possesses a formidable arsenal of medicinal potions--Temple must stay one step ahead of Lafayette Baker, head of the Union Army's spy service. Along the way, he'll run from or rely on Edwin Stanton, Lincoln's fearsome secretary of war; the legendary Scottish spymaster Allan Pinkerton; abolitionist Sojourner Truth; the photographer Alexander Gardner; and many others.

Why I Read This Book: I like historical books and this one looked like a good one to me and I was asked to review it.

Overall Impression: I am glad that I was given this book to review. I loved the history in this book as well as the conspiracy theory behind Lincoln's death. There were twists and turns that kept me from putting the book down. I loved Temple McFadden and his wife Fiona. Imagine if the diaries were true how history could have been re-written.

If you are a lover of history and mystery then this book is for you. 5 Stars.
