The Lincoln LetterBook - 2012
Peter Fallon and Evangeline Carrington head to Washington, D.C., to compete against dangerous adversaries in a hunt for Abraham Lincoln's Civil War diary, a record that contains information that could change history and influence key elections.
Treasure hunters Peter Fallon and Evangeline Carrington are heading for adventure in Washington D.C., the sleek, modern, power-hungry capital of America...and the crowded, muddy, intrigue-filled nexus of the Civil War. Their prize? A document of incredible historical importance and incalculable value: Abraham Lincoln's diary.
What if Lincoln recorded his innermost thoughts as he moved toward the realization that he must free the slaves? And what if that diary slipped from his fingers in 1862? A recently discovered letter written by Lincoln suggests that the diary exists and is waiting to be found. Some want the diary for its enormous symbolic value to a nation that reveres Lincoln. Others believe it carries a dark truth about Lincoln's famous proclamation--a truth that could profoundly impact the fast-approaching elections and change the course of a nation. Peter and Evangeline must race against these determined adversaries to uncover a document that could shake the foundation of Lincoln's legacy.
From William Martin, the New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Constitution, The Lincoln Letter is a breathless chase across the Washington of today as well as a political thriller set in our besieged Civil War capital. It is a story of old animosities that still smolder, old philosophies that still contend, and a portrait of our greatest president as he passes from lawyer to leader in the struggle for a new birth of freedom.
A latest entry in the best-selling series by the author of The Lost Constitution finds Peter Fallon and Evangeline Carrington heading to Washington, D.C. to compete against dangerous adversaries in a hunt for the 16th President's Civil War diary, a record that contains information that could change history and influence key elections. 40,000 first printing.
