I agree, Gene. I read it so long ago that what you say is what sticks most in my mind. Lots of differences between Starkey's book and the "traditional story." I remember Starkey maintained that Parker never left his post and allowed Booth to enter the box once he determined Booth's identity. I cannot think of many assassination books that say Parker never left his post. I think Starkey also argued that Booth committed suicide in Garrett's barn.
