Book Review: Killing Lincoln

O'Reilly, Bill and Martin Dugard.  Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever.

If you've never read a history of Lincoln's assassination, this one is perfectly acceptable.  However, there was no reason at all for this book to be written.  There is nothing new--only speculation and the most trivial of insights.  If you're going to read a book about the assassination, read this one.  At least you'll get some first rate photo essays out of the deal.  Essentially, in this volume, Bill O'Reilly lent his name to a book to cash in on his fame.
