Description

Joshua Speed, the enterprising second son of a wealthy plantation owner, has struck off on his own. But before long he makes a surprising and crucial new acquaintance-a freshly minted lawyer by the name of Abraham Lincoln. When an orphaned girl from a neighboring town is found murdered and suspicion falls on her aunt, Speed makes it his mission to clear her good name. Of course, he'll need the legal expertise of his unusual new friend. Together, Lincoln and Speed fight to bring justice to their small town. But as more bodies are discovered and the investigation starts to come apart at the seams, there's one question on everyone's lips: Does Lincoln have what it takes to crack his first murder case? Inspired by actual events from the American frontier, Jonathan Putnam's thrilling debut, These Honored Dead, brings a verve and vigor to the historical mystery genre that readers haven't seen since Caleb Carr's The Alienist.

Professional reviews

"Lawyer and historian Jonathan Putnam has written a historical legal mystery that features Abraham Lincoln as part of a crime detection team in Springfield Illinois in 1837. Lincoln defends a doctor accused of murdering his lover, as well as her niece and nephew. Narrator Lloyd James presents the young Lincoln as folksy, compassionate, and wise to the ways of the court system. As Lincoln, James speaks in a clearly enunciated, slightly high-pitched voice with just a trace of a Kentucky accent. James's other voices seem equally suited to the vibrant characters, including the slave owner Joshua Speed, a real-life friend of Lincoln. This audiobook is a good mix of historical fact and fast- paced fiction. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
