review 1: A good presentation of the context of the Lincoln assassination from the point of view of southern sympathizers. The author also provided a lot of details of Mary's life, which were very interesting. The trial is well documented here also, albeit a bit tedious to go through all the witness testimony.

Good, short book about Mary Suratt's involvement in the Lincoln assassination plot.
This is one of those books that ought to be good but felt like it would never end.
Impeccably researched. Intriguing how much Mary really knew.
This was a boring book and not worth reading.
very interesting & well written
