    1. Bates has one incredible imagination. He recounts stuff as "fact" when the facts are just the opposite. Yes, conspiracy theorists have grabbed onto this myth for the past 100+ years. The grammar is horrible and the facts are just plain wrong. Unless you are looking for the conspiracy theory - leave this book alone. Not worth the read.

    2. Having seen the Brad Meltzer's "Decoded" episode on John Wilkes Booth, I found this old book at and thought I'd give it a try. Published in 1907, the writing takes some getting used to, but it does give you fuel for thought.

    3. This book is fascinating. The author rambles on a lot giving extra details where I didn't find them necessary and repeats certain passages a lot. Very compelling. Great storytelling, lots of good evidence, sometimes slow but picks up fast too. A must-read for all conspiracy fanatics and history buffs.
