    Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer (James L. Swanson). I could not put this down even though I knew how it would end. I have recommended it to others who also could not put down.

    Hellhound On His Trail: The Stalking of Martin Luther King Jr. and the International Hunt for His Assassin (Hampton Sides). I am presently reading this one. Although I can remember MLK being shot, I don't remember any of the fallout. Amazing stuff and another one I can't wait to pick up and continue reading.

    Behind Closed Doors: the tragic, untold story of the Duchess of Windsor - Hugo Vickers. An
    engaging, thoroughly researched account of the lives of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor, focussing
    especially on the Duchess' last years when she was crippled by rheumatism and strokes, and in a
    vegetative state. This is when her French lawyer closed in, isolating the Duchess from her
    friends, filching her private correspondence and other effects.

    Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I really enjoyed it (my grandfather was wounded in WWII, and it made me think about what his experiences must have been like - though he was never held in a POW camp), but I know that some others with degrees in history find the book -- as nonfiction -- annoyingly unvalidated by appropriate sources. It led to very heated discussion in my book club! I thought of it as a "biography" rather than as "nonfiction" and never had an issue myself. A fascinating read.
