In The Assassin's Accomplice, historian Kate Clifford Larson tells the gripping story of Mary Surratt, a little-known participant in the plot to kill Abraham Lincoln, and the first woman ever to be executed by the federal government of the United States. Surratt, a Confederate sympathizer, ran the boarding house in Washington where the conspirators-including her rebel son, John Surratt-met to plan the assassination. When a military tribunal convicted her for her crimes and sentenced her to death, five of the nine commissioners petitioned President Andrew Johnson to show mercy on Surratt because of her sex and age. Unmoved, Johnson refused-Surratt, he said, “kept the nest that hatched the egg.” Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, The Assassin's Accomplice tells the intricate story of the Lincoln conspiracy through the eyes of its only female participant. Based on long-lost interviews, confessions, and court testimony, the text explores how Mary's actions defied nineteenth-century norms of femininity, piety, and motherhood, leaving her vulnerable to deadly punishment historically reserved for men. A riveting narrative account of sex, espionage, and murder cloaked in the enchantments of Southern womanhood, The Assassin's Accomplice offers a fresh perspective on America's most famous murder.

Miss White was thinking about maps as she walked along... completely oblivious to the man three streets away, whose hands still grasped his gaping throat. As a plain woman in 1853, Miss White knows her options are limited. Just as she is willing to settle for the poor but titled Lord Rowell, she runs into freelance assassin Joseph Thorne--literally. Not only handsome, but well-read and engaging, Mr. Thorne makes her realize how unfulfilled Lord Rowell makes her feel. But quitting the gentleman proves difficult when he flies into a jealous rage and threatens to ruin Miss White if she rejects him. Miss White has no father, no brothers, no one to defend her. That is, until Mr. Thorne offers to kill Lord Rowell... in exchange for a favor. Left with no choice, the unassuming Miss White finds herself learning the art of seduction and preparing to assist in the assassination of a Russian baron. A steamy blend of LA FEMME NIKITA and MADAME BOVARY, ASSASSIN'S ACCOMPLICE is a stomach-clenching affair in Victorian Bath. ASSASSIN'S ARRANGEMENT and ASSASSIN'S ACCOMPLICE can be read in any order.

I finally reduced my choice to two titles, the second one being used as the sub-title: "THE VATICAN CIPHERS". If I had not been so sensative to the economic and social consequences of the Kennedy and Lincoln assassinations, this would have been the actual title, because more than anything else this is about the early invention of our languages. Some of the most important discoveries include the following: Religious names and words such as Christ, Thomas, crucifixion and others were used as roots to invent many of our modern day words, but they were originally written phonetically, and then hidden away when dictionaries standardized our spelling of words. A technique was discovered showing how rootwords and rootnames were used to create other words and ideas and then those ideas and words were used to create detail in short stories especially myths and religious fables of the New Testament. Since this technique was not known to exist, if fell on me to invent a name for it, I named it the ROOTWORD TECHNIQUE. Finally, I discovered that the alphabet was pictorial, or hieroglyphic. The wordsmiths who created our vocabulary used the letters as pictures as well as symbols for sounds.

The guard at the city gates does not attempt to stop the stranger entering Nuthollia, for his job is to keep people inside the city and no person would enter the city voluntarily unless he were an agent of Grimlindus. Nuthollia, the capital of Neuthonia, is no longer a trading metropolis. Its remaining inhabitants are usually hiding indoors, trying to escape Grimlindus's violent soldiersthe tall blond northerners, bandit warriors and Knights of Destruction, as well as goblins, hobgoblins, kobolds and ogres from further east on the steppes. While contact with these soldiers is dangerous and unpredictable, the soldiers do keep the city's economy moving, the trade continuing. So Nuthollia's inhabitants, the original Neuthonics as well as countless released prisoners-of-war, attempt to earn a meagre living in fear and dread. The stranger is rnwulf, the tall barbarian who had been learning sword-skills in the cold hills of the Borderlands. He is dressed in heavy furs. His long, straight, black hair is tied back by a broad cloth that completely conceals his forehead and from which hangs three beaded feathers. His heavy broadsword is strapped to his back, partially buried within his fur coat, while a number of knives are strapped to his chest and belt. A two-headed tomahawk hangs from his belt. He is accompanied by Caleb, the huge wolf that is as large as a small pony and which has a thick mane of grey fur. Man and wolf survey the cold, snow-covered streets, looking beyond the unhappy houses to the dark palace standing on a hill near the centre of the city. They turn away from it and head into one of the darker and less inviting neighbourhoods, where even Grimlindus's soldiers would think twice before entering. The houses are closer together than elsewhere; the streets disappear into narrow alleyways and blind corners. Open doorways and boarded windows show that many of the residences are empty of normal occupation. However, a quick survey inside would reveal hiding squatters, ruffians, thieves and muggers. The man and wolf stop in front of a building that is deep within this neighbourhood. This building is similar to all the others, dismal and grey. It has a heavy steel door with a small window at face height, covered by a shutter. The man thumps on the door and the shutter is pulled back, revealing two dark, slanted eyes. "What do you want?" says the bouncer. "Where are your mistresses?" asks rnwulf, with a heavy, northern accent. "They are busy. Who wants to know?" "I was sent by Cleosius the warlord, to purchase something which was stolen from him. They are expecting me." The shutter is slid shut and rnwulf hears muted discussions behind it. The shutter slides open again. "You are early!" snaps the voice and the shutter slams closed. rnwulf thumps on the door again, his blows echoing inside. The shutter is pulled back again. "Can I wait inside?" he asks. The door opens, revealing a seven-and-a-half foot monstrosity, which bends over inside the small front room; its hairy frame fills up the doorway. Bugbear! thinks rnwulf, staring at the hairy giant-goblin, which would tower over one of its smaller goblin or hobgoblin cousins. "Come inside," it snarls, "but the wolf stays out there." After re-locking the door, the bugbear leads rnwulf along a dimly lit corridor, before arriving at a small room, furnished only with a hard-backed chair. "The mistresses are busy, the bugbear growls, but I will send someone to fetch them when they are, um, finished. Would you like a drink while you are waiting?" rnwulf waves the bugbear away and sits on the chair. In a moment, he becomes completely motionless, his keen eyes surveying every inch of the room. He waits, becoming tenser as he looks at the low ceiling and the walls. After a short time he stands up, goes to the door and tries the handle, finding it locked. H
