Overview

On a stormy night in 1932, Charles August Lindbergh Jr., infant son of world-famous aviation pioneer, Charles Lindbergh, was kidnapped from his parents' home in New Jersey. His body was discovered nearby some six weeks later after a nation-wide manhunt and world-wide expressions of sympathy and outrage. It was labeled the "Crime of the Century."

In September of 1933, a German carpenter named Bruno Richard Hauptmann was arrested, tried and executed for kidnapping and murder of the Lindbergh baby. There was only one problem with this: Hauptmann was innocent.

The identity of the real murderer has never before been revealed. After 15 years of research, William Norris has finally tracked him down, revealing the duplicitous behavior of Charles Lindbergh, who began by obstructing the investigation and ended by sending Hauptmann to the electric chair on perjured evidence.

But why should Lindbergh, the Great American Hero, do such a thing? Who was he trying to shield and for what conceivable reason? The answers can be found in A Talent to Deceive. It's a compulsive read for anyone who cares about the truth.
