A New York Times Bestselling Author

The subject of more than a century of scholarship, speculation, and even obsession, John Wilkes Booth is often portrayed as a shadowy figure, a violent loner whose single murderous act made him the most hated man in America. Lost to history was the story of the four women whom he loved and who loved him in return.


Customer Reviews

“Chiaverini expands the dimensions of Booth’s tragedy to classic proportions . . . Engaging, sweeping historical fiction that complicates politics by teasing out the domestic and romantic repercussions of treason.”
