Editorial Reviews

Review

"Takes a little-known true story about the FIRST plot to kill Abraham Lincoln and turns it into a first-rate nonfiction thriller. Filled with amazing American history, secret societies, incredible research, and a shocking conspiracy to murder Abraham Lincoln at the dawn of his presidency. A brilliant combination of edge-of-your-seat history and superb storytelling." - James L. Swanson, bestselling author of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer

"Think you know everything about Abraham Lincoln? Well, think again. The Lincoln Conspiracy not only revitalizes history, it transforms it, turning its principal player into a flesh and blood defender of everything the republic stands for, and the target of a malevolent cabal that went awry long before the ill-fated night at Ford's Theatre. Fantastic. You’ll never look at Abraham Lincoln the same way again." - Les Standiford, bestselling author of Last Train to Paradise & Meet You in Hell

“Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch have found and rescued the harrowing story of Abraham Lincoln under assault by lurking would-be assassins (long before John Wilkes Booth). Every page is mesmerizing and eye-opening. A must-read!” - Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University and author of American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race.

“Abraham Lincoln. Secret Societies. A deadly plot. And it all really happened! You won’t be getting any sleep tonight. This book is dynamite. Meltzer does it again. History at its very best.” - Brian Kilmeade, bestselling author of Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers

"A delightful addition to popular literature on the Civil War era." - Booklist

"Meltzer and Mensch maintain suspense despite the known outcome of the story, and convincingly counter claims that Pinkerton made the whole thing up for publicity purposes. Readers new to the “Baltimore Plot” will appreciate this comprehensive and well-written overview." - Publishers Weekly

“Energetic....A brisk political thriller centered on a nefarious plot to murder Lincoln before his inauguration.... A sharply drawn episode.” - Kirkus

"The Lincoln Conspiracy is...relentlessly fun to read. Meltzer and Mensch are refreshingly unpretentious authors who prove gifted at providing essential context to the main storyline ― they deftly paint a picture of 19th-century America, taking deep dives into Lincoln's life and the prevailing attitudes toward race and politics at the time. It's an expertly crafted book that seems sure to delight readers with an interest in lesser-known episodes of American history." - NPR

5.0 out of 5 stars What an Incredible Story!
By Robert James Vandevoort (Show Low, Arizona) on August 10, 2020
Over the years, this reader has read many books about President Abraham Lincoln, yet the best one he has ever read was the recently released “The Lincoln Conspiracy” by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch. This is about the secret plot to kill America’s 16th president and why it failed. The research and writing were impressive. The reader goes back in time and you feel as if you are on the streets with the events unfolding.

This reader also either did not know or had forgotten the role of Allan Pinkerton and his agents who foiled the plot to kill the incoming president. He and his agents infiltrated the Democrats who planned to kill Lincoln prior to his inauguration. Simply a fascinating story.

There are many reflections to the political hatred between the Democrats and the Republicans then, as there are today. The Democrats then were the slave owners. The Republicans were the abolitionists. The resulting civil war was a dark period in American history and remains a topic of conversation today.

Great job Brad and Josh. This is a great work of history.
