Episode 1071, "Conspiracy" is similar in title to 0918, "The Conspiracy", however they are both uniquely different stories.

Very well done story on the Lincoln Assassination.

This is a terrific episode. Everyone is on the money this time, and there's very sharp writing throughout. I wish all of the shows were up to this standard. Even the sound seems clearer than ever. Kevin McCarthy and Arnold Moss are superior, but Russell Horton and Court Benson are right there keeping step. There's no suspense, because we know the ending, but it paints a chilling portrait of the components of a bargain basement conspiracy that worked because of the period it took place in. Poor Abe was so easy to get to. What a listening experience! I've recommended this one to several people.
