Burt Solomon, author of The Murder of Willie Lincoln and The Attempted Murder of Teddy Roosevelt: “Washington hasn’t changed all that much since the 1840s–it was just as nasty and … perilous back then. This is a well-written, well-paced tale with a nice feel for the times. It’s history that goes down easy, my favorite kind.”
