THE LINCOLN CONSPIRACY: THE SECRET PLOT TO KILL AMERICA’S 16TH PRESIDENT–AND WHY IT FAILED, by Brad Meltzer  (Author), Josh Mensch  (Author)

Publisher: Flatiron Books (May 5, 2020)

“In 2019, #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer, with Josh Mensch, wrote THE FIRST CONSPIRACY: The Secret Plot to Kill George Washington, a national bestseller that was widely praised by critics, historians, and two U.S. Presidents for its meticulous research and propulsive narrative. Meltzer and Mensch return to uncover another fascinating episode previously lost to history in THE LINCOLN CONSPIRACY: The Secret Plot to Kill America’s 16th President—and Why It Failed (Flatiron Books; May 5, 2020). In our current climate of uncertainty and fear, the book is a reminder of the capacity for American greatness in the form of one of its most lauded and inspirational heroes, Abraham Lincoln.”

THE LINCOLN CONSPIRACY is a story few people know, one that’s set in a time of deep political division in America,” Meltzer says. “It shows us what good leaders can do in times of strife – perfectly on point for where our country is today.”
