"The definitive history of the attempted murder of Harry S. Truman.... Truman's near-killing is a good subject for many reasons, including its disappearance into the black hole of our amnesia.... Hooked, the reader begins a journey that weaves...across the lives of all protagonists, pulled by fate toward the bloody confrontation."
-- Ted Windmer, The Washington Post
"Extensively researched and mellifluously told...American Gunfight is a splendid read."
-- Carl Schoettler, Baltimore Sun
"Hunter and Bainbridge's handling of the recorded events is not only convincing but compelling."
-- Publishers Weekly
"A day worth remembering. American Gunfight is well worth reading."
-- The Washington Post
"A fast-paced thriller."
-- Alonzo Hamby, The Wall Street Journal
