That's the name of the new bestseller about the attempt to capture John Wilkes Booth after he shot Lincoln. I knew the author, James Swanson, a bit at OLC when we both worked there during the Reagan Adminstration.

This New York Times article suggests that he is making (a minimum of) $1 million on the book and movie rights, presumably with more on the way. All in the pursuit of his obsession. An enviable man! Congratulations James.
