Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, The Assassin's Accomplice tells the gripping story of the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln through experience of its only female participant.

Calling upon long-lost interviews, confessions, and court testimony, historian Kate Clifford Larson magnificently captures how Surratt's actions defied nineteenth-century norms of piety and allegiance. A riveting account of espionage and murder, The Assassin's Accomplice offers a revealing examination of America's most remembered assassination.
