A book by Thomas DiLorenzo
"An excellent book--it’s like The Day of the Jackal set in 1861 Washington." -Vince Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Pursuit of Honor
"The First Assassin is one of the most exciting thrillers I have read in a long, long time. This is historical fiction at its best and John J. Miller is the hot new author everyone will be talking about." -Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Apostle
"The story moves with swift suspense, but Miller's real achievement is to take us inside a mindset nearly lost to time." -Andrew Klavan, author of Empire of Lies
"Utterly compelling, the novel sweeps the reader along multiple story lines which converge at one point, one moment, where history pivots on its axis. A skilled writer of non-fiction, Miller uses his knowledge and research to create a powerful thriller that is completely believable…There’s not a false note in the whole book." -Robert Ferrigno, author of Heart of the Assassin--This text refers to an alternatePaperbackedition.
