"Like The Day of the Jackal set in 1861 Washington."

That's a description of John J. Miller's new historical novel The First Assassin. Sounds pretty irresistible to me.

I know Miller slightly and he's one of the true gentlemen of the Washington press: a good guy, a diligent reporter, and a solid writer. I'm looking forward to reading his book.

I've known Miller since I was 15. He basically taught me how to write. The book is actually good, which is surprising considering the efforts of some other pundits who ventured into the world of fiction (cough, Rich Lowry, cough).
