Title Profile & Character Information

Bloody Crimes

Annotation
When Lincoln was assassinated, it was assumed that Confederate president Jefferson Davis was the mastermind. Swanson recounts the hunt for Davis even as Lincoln's body was borne to its resting place. Manhunt, Swanson's account of the assassination itself, was a huge best seller-and it's slated for an eight-part HBO miniseries. This will be big, too. With a one-day laydown on April 4 and a 250,000-copy first printing; seven-city tour.
