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
