nope, it’s not a catalogue of public restrooms, sorry disappointed websearchers. it’s a brilliant book about the 12 day chase to find John Wilkes Booth after he shot Abraham Lincoln. this is a brilliant book. you must read. it’s quick. it reads like a movie.

this guy was one of the co-conspirators. right after booth shot lincoln, Lewis Powell snuck into the home of Secretary of State Seward and stabbed the man as he lay in bed, fighting off the entire family as he did it. that is one of the most compelling scenes of the novel.

John Wilkes Booth is fascinating. an actor, through and through. this is one of the most incredible and defining episodes in American History. It has enormous relevance for American theatre.
