“John Surratt was indeed the Lincoln assassin who got away, but, fortunately, he will not escape history thanks to Michael Schein. In this well-researched, beautifully written account of John Surratt, Schein brings historical justice to a man who has been given a pass for too long.” ~ Edward Steers, Jr., Author (among other works) of Lincoln’s Assassination, The Lincoln Assassination Encyclopedia, and Blood on the Moon.
“Impeccable scholarship wrapped in page-turning prose!” describes Michael’s forthcoming book, John Surratt: the Lincoln Assassin Who Got Away. This groundbreaking book gives us a whole new perspective on one of the seminal events
of American history.
Surratt was Booth’s closest associate during the four months leading up to the assassination, and he was a known member of the Confederate Secret Service with ties to the highest levels of Confederate Government. If there is a missing link between Jefferson Davis and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, his name is John Surratt.
Adding to the intrigue, Surratt’s two-year run from the law is a fascinating adventure, spanning the globe from New York to Canada, Great Britain, France, Italy and Egypt.
