Inhaltsangabe

Washington City, 1862: The United States lies in tatters, and there seems no end to the war. Abraham Lincoln, the legitimate president of the United States, is using all his will to keep his beloved land together. But Lincoln's will and soul are tested when tragedy strikes the White House: Willie Lincoln, the love and shining light in the president's heart, is taken by typhoid fever.

But was this really the cause of his death? A message arrives suggesting otherwise. Lincoln asks John Hay, his trusted aide - and almost a son - to investigate Willie's death. Some see Hay as a gadfly - adventurous, incisive, lusty, reflective, skeptical, even cynical - but he loves the president and so seeks the truth behind the boy's death. And so, as we follow Hay in his investigation, we are shown the loftiest and lowest corners of Washington City, from the president's office and the gentleman's dining room at Willard's Hotel to the alley hovels, wartime hospitals, and the dome-less Capitol's vermin-infested sub-basement. We see the unfamiliar sides of a grief-stricken president, his hellcat of a wife, and their two surviving and suffering sons, and Hay matches wits with such luminaries as General McClellan, William Seward, and the indomitable detective Allan Pinkerton.

What Hay discovers has the potential of destroying not only Lincoln but a nation.

The Murder of Willie Lincoln is an exciting historical fiction debut by award-winning political journalist and Washington insider Burt Solomon.
