ABOUT THE BOOK"The man with six weeks to live is anxious. He furls his brow, as he does countless times each day, and walks out of the Capitol Building, which is nearing completion. He is exhausted, almost numb."It is a rare to find a historical work written in the present tense, but in Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever, that is what Martin Dugard and Bill O'Reilly have done. In a USA Today interview, "O'Reilly says Dugard did the research on the Lincoln book, and 'I wrote it. A true collaboration.'" While the book is light on attribution, it is a compelling and fast read. O'Reilly says he "wanted [Killing Lincoln] to read like a thriller... for people who are not particularly interested in history, and to show what true leaders are like." It does indeed read like a thriller. Using the present tense gives the work immediacy and heightens pace, but at times also feels intrusive because the subject matter so clearly isn't immediate today....
