LINCOLN’S GRAVE ROBBERS, by Steve Sheinkin

Image

The story: Here’s the true story about a group of men who wanted to get their buddy (who also happened to be the country’s most skillful counterfeiter) out of jail.  And a little ransom money sounded good, too.  But they weren’t going to kidnap just anybody–they were going to steal the body of Abraham Lincoln, the country’s most loved president, and hold it hostage until the government saw things their way.  In this book, you’ll meet fake-money men, organized crime bosses, and the Secret Service guys who took “protecting the president” to a whole different level! Mrs. Friend says: If you’re the kind of kid who wants to read a true story, not just something “made up”, you’ll want to check this one out!
