"Destiny of the Republic" by Candice Millard
History buffs as well as crime aficionados will love "Destiny of the Republic" which is a double biography of the 20th President James A. Garfield and his assassin Charles Guiteau. Garfield's spectacular rise to political prominence, Giteau's madness, the malpractice of Garfield's doctor's, and Alexander Graham Bell's scientific inventions involved in treating the President all create fascinating points of entry to the novel.
