I recently finished Manhunt by James L. Swanson, a story of the 12 day chase for Lincoln's killer. The book contains some fascinating details of the assassination and time period in American history. I highly recommend it, even to those who may only be mildly interested.
Recommended soundtrack: Assassins.
