Cleburne Fan and Ronayne64,

I have several reasons why I think "Manhunt" is a fetid piece of tripe. When the book first came out, a co-worker couldn't understand why I was so adamantly opposed to the book, so I wrote the attached review to explain it. Please take time to read it and you will understand my position.

As to Ed Steer's comments, I also consider Ed to be a friend, but that doesn't mean I completely agree with everything he says (same holds true with Mike). Ed is certainly entitled to his opinion of the book, as am I. As for the other comments, do you honestly think each of the authors read the book? Plus, even though they rate miles above me in terms of academic knowledge and ability to produce scholarship, I wouldn't place James McPherson or John Hope Franklin high on the list of those with intimate detailed knowledge of Lincoln's assassination, and I wouldn't place Patricia Cornwell anywhere on that list.

Best
Rob
