Abstract:

From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States. Four has been successful. But, now, archivist Beecher White discovers a killer in Washington, D.C., who's meticulously recreating the crimes of the four assassins. Historians have branded the four as lone wolves. But what if the historians were wrong? Soon Beecher discovers the truth: that during the course of a hundred years, all four murderers were secretly working together. What was their purpose? And for whom did they work? And why are they planning to kill the current President? Beecher's about to find out. And most terrifyingly, he's about to come face-to-face with the fifth assassin.--From publisher description.
