For seventy-five years, the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh's infant son has gone unsolved. Evidence, opinion, and logic have discredited the notion that Bruno Richard Hauptmann--electrocuted in 1936--acted alone. In this meticulous and authoritative account of the crime, the trial, and the times of the Lindbergh kidnapping, Robert Zorn clears away decades of ungrounded speculation surrounding the case. Inspired by his father's relationship with the actual accomplices --including the mastermind --he presents the clearest ever picture of a criminal partnership, which would shake every class and culture of American society.

The author makes a good case and the book flows very well. His story is a lot more believable than the books that say Charles Lindberg or his sister in law killed the baby.

Robert Zorn presents a very compelling argument for the involvement of John Knoll in the infamous Lindbergh kidnapping case. He claims his father knew one of the men who were in on the scheme to defraud the Lindbergh’s by stealing their first born child. Most people who have examined the case from the moment of the crime until today, feel that there is no way one person could have been responsible. Cemetery John entered the story in a way that has mystified and baffled most crime experts. Even in a case that is this strange and filled with twists and turns and bungled actions on behalf of almost everyone involved, the clues seem to add up to Zorn’s conclusions. This is one of the most interesting books on the subject that I have read in a long time.
