Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of April 27, 2020:

  1.  “The Lincoln Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill America's 16th President--and Why It Failed’’ by Brad Meltzer with Josh Mensch (Flatiron Books). Everyone knows the story of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination in 1865, but few are aware of the original conspiracy to kill him four years earlier in 1861, literally on his way to Washington, D.C., for his first inauguration. As Meltzer, the bestselling thriller writer reveals, the conspirators were part of a pro-Southern secret society that didn’t want an antislavery president in the White House. They planned an elaborate scheme to kill the brand new president in Baltimore as his inauguration train passed through en route to the Capitol. Had the assassination succeeded, there would have been no Lincoln Presidency, and the course of the Civil War and American history would have forever been altered. (Nonfiction)
  2. No Ordinary Dog: My Partner from the SEAL Teams to the Bin Laden Raid” by Will Chesney, U.S. Navy SEAL, with Joe Layden (St. Martin’s Press). Chesney was part of the team who descended on Osama bin Laden’s compound in May 2011 and killed the notorious terror chief. Aiding in the heroic mission was Cairo, a Belgian Malinois and military working dog. In “No Ordinary Dog,’’ Chesney tells the canine’s story.’’ As they worked together over the years, the SEAL and Cairo depended on each other for survival on hundreds of critical anti-terror operations. And when a grenade blast in 2013 left Chesney with a brain injury, PTSD, crippling migraines, chronic pain, memory issues and depression, he again turned to Cairo for support. (Nonfiction)
  3. Where is God in a Coronavirus World?’’ By John C. Lennox (The Good Book Company). Lennox, an Emeritus professor of mathematics at Oxford University, has famously defended the Christian faith against well known atheists including Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. He argues that belief in a loving and sovereign God can help us make sense of and cope with the coronavirus outbreak. He looks at the illness in light of various belief systems and how the Christian worldview not only helps make sense of it. He says he wrote the book to provide “comfort, support and hope’’ during this “unique, era-defining period.” (Nonfiction)
  4. Make America Healthy Again: How Bad Behavior and Big Government Caused a Trillion-Dollar Crisis’’ by Nicole Saphier, M.D. (HarperCollins). Saphier, a Memorial Sloan Kettering physician, believes individual negligence and big government incompetence have destroyed America’s health care system. Combining historical events, economic trends, and essential lifestyle advice, she offers concrete solutions to address the problem. She says Americans don’t need socialized medicine, but just need to take better care of themselves. And by getting healthier and adopting preventative measures, Saphier argues, we can reduce the astronomical costs of treatment and improve overall care. (Nonfiction)
  5. Active Measures: The Secret History of Disinformation and Political Warfare’’ by Thomas Rid (Farrar, Straus and Giroux). Rid, a national security expert, examines the history of disinformation, tracing the rise of secret, organized deception operations. It begins, he says, with the post-Russian Revolution clash between communism and capitalism, which would come to define the Cold War. Among the stories he tells: How a White Russian ploy backfires and brings down a New York police commissioner; how a KGB-engineered, anti-Semitic hate campaign creeps back across the Iron Curtain; and how the CIA backs a fake publishing empire, run by a former Wehrmacht U-boat commander, that produces Germany’s best jazz magazine. He also tracks the rise of leaking, and shows how spies began to exploit emerging internet culture many years before WikiLeaks. (Nonfiction)
