Maryville Talks Books: One on One with Dan Abrams

    ABC News’ chief legal analyst Dan Abrams has covered some of the biggest trials of our time. But in “Lincoln’s Last Trial: The Murder Case That Propelled Him to the Presidency,” Abrams and co-author David Fisher go back in time to examine the trial that nudged a pre-presidential Lincoln closer to the national spotlight. Drawing from the only existing transcript of a Lincoln trial, Abrams and Fisher present a compelling portrait of Lincoln the Lawyer, a man on the brink of becoming America’s revered and fearless 16th President. In this extensive interview, Abrams discusses the thrill of watching his book become a New York Times Bestseller, and why he loves hosting “Live PD” on A&E.
