About this title

Synopsis:

When John Wilkes Booth shoots Lincoln with a bullet cursed by the notorious Chicken Man, a local voodoo practitioner, he unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events extending far into the future. Instead of killing Lincoln, the bullet puts the president into a coma for sixty-eight years, his body remaining limber and ageless. When he awakens in 1933, Abe Lincoln is a man out of time, a revered icon...and a political pariah. FDR and J. Edgar Hoover not only do not want him around, they want him to retire. But their plan to be rid of him backfires and Lincoln is on the run, a fugitive from justice.

Determined to reach Chicago and retrieve the small fortune left in trust for him by his long-dead son, Lincoln discovers that Hoover has confiscated all his money, leaving him destitute. With Bureau of Investigation agent Melvin Purvis in hot pursuit, Lincoln finds his way to a hobo camp where he befriends a young runaway, who agrees to accompany the former president back to Washington. There Lincoln hopes that Hannah Wheelhouse, the Chicken Man's granddaughter, can help him find the peace he longs for.

Then fate deals Lincoln another strange hand when he and the boy end up as hostages to infamous bank robber John Dillinger. Instead of leaving them by the side of the road after the robbery, Dillinger takes a liking to Lincoln and invites him to join the gang, promising him he'll get all his money back.

Will Lincoln survive long enough to recapture his fortune and get away, or will he be hunted down in a manner unbefitting a martyred President?

In Brian Anthony and Bill Walker's inventive and entertaining novel, history gets a work-out, the action is flat-out, and almost everyone gets rubbed-out!

Review:

Clever and swiftly moving, yet with surprising attention to historical detail, Abe Lincoln: Public Enemy No. 1 is an intricate and engaging work of popular fiction that should satisfy a wide audience. --Foreword Clarion Review ***** (Five Stars)

"It was impossible for me to put down Bill Walker and Brian Anthony's amazing Abe Lincoln: Public Enemy No. 1. A truly fantastic read and I am quite certain that it will make a tremendous motion picture." --Honorary Academy Award Winning Filmmaker Roger Corman
