Is Abraham Lincoln’s body in his grave?  When DNA from a hand found with a blackmail note traced back to 1901 matches the DNA from bone taken at Lincoln’s autopsy, Senior FBI Special Agent Zane Rigby is assigned the case.

Along the way he discovers a local congressman hiding a dreaded secret and a strange doctor who claims he can perform medical miracles.  Looking for redemption, Rigby must discover the secret buried beneath Lincoln’s Tomb.
