Even though its cover is faded and torn, Stephanie bought the hundred year old book because penciled inside is the name and address of the young girl who owned it long ago. Enthralled, she searches the internet for information about her, but what Stephanie learns leads her and her family on a devastating journey back through time as article after article details the brutal murder of a young American college student in a beautiful Swiss valley beneath the Matterhorn.
This is the stunning story of how the innocent purchase of an antique childrens book caused a family to rediscover a terrible crime that captured the headlines on both sides of the Atlantic during the autumn of 1932, the exemplary investigation and pursuit of the killer by the Swiss Police, and the crucial support the staff of the American Embassy in Switzerland and the people of the Swiss valley gave to the police and the victim's younger sister.

About the Author
J.J. Maxwell is an entrepreneur who enjoys writing between (and often during) business ventures. Mostly a writer of screenplays, Along the Darksome Road is his first non-fiction novel. From a family of ardent readers, enjoyment of the written word seems to be in his genes, since his paternal grandfather was a rotogravure pressman for the New York Daily News (amongst other newspapers) and his great-grandfather and great-uncle were also in the newspaper business.
