Copies of The First Assassin are now reaching U.S. soldiers overseas, thanks to the generosity of readers who took advantage of a special offer last month. Over the weekend, I received this note:

Thank you for your kind donation of your book. I am [name withheld] and I was one of the lucky ones that got to receive a copy of your book. I have not read it yet, but I promised David, a volunteer with Books for Soldiers that I would send you an acknowledgment email. I will also let you know what I thought of it when I finish it. My OIC (Officer in Charge) is a huge fan of Lincoln’s, so she is very excited to read it as well. I am stationed out here in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan, and I truly appreciate the support of you and other fellow Americans. It means the world to me that we are not forgotten out here. So thank you again for you support of the troops.

Spin Boldak lies to the south of Kandahar, on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Here’s an picture from Spin Boldak that appeared in the New York Daily News last August.
