Incredibly well researched history of the Booth family and the rivalry between brothers that led to the shooting of President Lincoln in the Ford Theater. If you are a civil war fan, this is a must read. I also emerged from the reading better versed in the history of theater in America and the history of how actors are viewed in society. What was missing was a better understanding of the psychological -- there is little information about the type of "madness" that ran in the family. I would love to have had an addendum by Kay Redfield Jamieson.
An amazing first book by an author to watch.
