The First Assassin is here! Today is the formal publication date. So let’s go on a book tour.

Here’s The First Assassin outside the Lincoln Memorial, from a location beside the Reflecting Pool. See all those people sitting on the steps? They’re listening to a park ranger play a recording of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech, which of course was delivered from that very spot.

    While I thoroughly enjoyed the book–it was a requested Christmas gift–it did seem like most people who died, e.g. the street preacher, were “dead before they hit the ground.” I think that even described a dog’s death. That minor pick aside, The First Assassin is an excellent read.

  • I just read this on NRO’s The Corner and was momentarily perturbed that people buying the book long after I did were getting a better deal… fewer typos, cooler cover, better map, AND cheaper than what I paid when I bought this through CreateSpace about 9 months ago.

    Then I remembered that when *I* bought a copy of it, a free copy was sent to a member of the U.S. Armed Services stationed abroad fighting for our country, and I immediately felt morally superior to all the Johnny Come-Latelys who are only now getting around to buying this excellent novel.

    But seriously, great book, and thank you again for arranging the January promotion to provide copies to our wonderful soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.

    I actually love the cover on the original. I was privileged to escort my wife of 29 years on her first trip to DC this spring (she is a member of her company’s steering committee for their charitable foundation and their meeting was there). Traipsing along with her group on a private tour of the Capitol I remarked to the guide that I had your book with the picture of “new” dome under construction on the cover. The guide was pleasantly surprised that your novel had kindled a fascination in me to the point that I spent several hours scouring the web for information about early civil war era Washington D.C. Many thanks again for the book!
