About the Author

After many years as a trial and appellate lawyer, David O. Stewart became a bestselling writer of history and historical fiction. His first novel, The Lincoln Deception, was about the John Wilkes Booth Conspiracy. Sequels include The Paris Deception, set at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, and The Babe Ruth Deception, which follows Babe's early years with the Yankees. Released in November 2021, The New Land began the Overstreet Saga. David's histories explore the writing of the Constitution, the gifts of James Madison, the western expedition and treason trial of Aaron Burr, and the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. In February 2021, Dutton published his George Washington: The Political Rise of America's Founding Father. For more information visit davidostewart.com.
WILLIAM MARTIN is the New York Times bestselling author of twelve novels, an award-winning PBS documentary on the life of George Washington, and a cult-classic horror film, too. In novels like Back Bay, City of Dreams, The Lost Constitution, The Lincoln Letter, and Bound for Gold, he has told stories of the great and the anonymous of American history, and he's taken readers from the deck of the Mayflower to 9/11. His work has earned him many accolades and honors, including the 2005 New England Book Award, the 2015 Samuel Eliot Morison Award, and the 2019 Robert B. Parker Award. He and his wife live near Boston, where he serves on the boards of several cultural and historical institutions, and he has three grown children.

Reviews

"This fast-paced and smartly researched first novel is astonishingly good, complete with sharp and colorful characters, nicely drawn by Stewart." (Best historical novel of 2013)
--Stephen L. Carter Bloomberg View, December 3, 2013

"Impressive debut novel...Eschewing the wild fantasies of many conspiracy thrillers, Stewart constructs a plausible version of history that works as both fiction and speculative inquiry."
--Publishers Weekly, July 22, 2013

"One of the most satisfying treats of "The Lincoln Deception" is the engaging way it reminds us that the actual story [of the Lincoln assassination] was much more complicated. . . . There is more than enough to satisfy any reader of historical whodunits. . . its conclusion has a wry double edge that Lincoln himself would have appreciated."
--Washington Post, December 7, 2013

"Stewart's debut novel, set in 1900, is dense with detail and intrigue, making a hearty read for conspiracy addicts."
--Library Journal, September, 2013

"The Lincoln Deception is a superb melding of fact, mystery, and imaginary 'what-ifs' that blow open the conspiracy shrouds surrounding the murder of a president."
--GateHouse News Service, September 20, 2013

"Stewart delivers a strong narrative current driven by historical exposition and good old-fashioned drama. The result is a brisk action plot with the pace of an Elmore Leonard novel. Perhaps most impressive is Stewart's grasp of dialogue. The exchange between his characters is not only natural but full of verve and humanity and contributes heartily to a plot bursting with surprises.

"It's difficult to believe that this is his first novel. Let's hope that it isn't his last."
--Michael Williams, Erickson Tribune, October 2013
