The new bestseller, Manhunt: The Twelve Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer, has a few unusual distinctions. It was written with a careful respect for historical accuracy rather than a desire to promote either an ideological agenda or self-aggrandizement. Also, it was written with deep respect and gratitude towards one of America's greatest heroes. And, finally, Manhunt: The Twelve Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer was written by a man dedicated to preserving and promoting conservative ideals.
