After it was announced that the twenty month-old son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh was abducted, the entire world grieved for their loss. Seventy-two days later, the body was found in the woods next to a roadway, a short distance from Lindbergh's house.
In 1927, Lindbergh was the first to fly the Atlantic. By 1932, he was perhaps the most famous man alive. A great hero, he was allowed to be the chief architect of the investigation into his son's kidnapping. In this capacity, the first thing he did was to have the body cremated without an autopsy.
Was this done on purpose? Or, was it done for emotional reasons? The authors, Gregory Ahlgren and Stephen Monier delve into the story like no other investigator has done in the annals of this famous-infamous kidnapping.

In March 1932, Charles Lindbergh's child was abducted and after seventy-two hours, the child was found dead. Lindbergh took the investigation in his hands, an investigation that lasted two years. Hauptmann was apprehended and charged for the kidnapping and murder of this child. But the question is: Did he really commit the crime? This book offers a very critical look into the case and unveils facts that will make readers ask more questions than the answers the investigation and the conviction provide. It's a chilling account of a case that will blow the minds of readers and a well-research statement on the injustices of our age. The writers seem to have done a lot of research. The writing is fairly good, but it's the facts that will keep readers eyes glued to the pages of this gripping tale. It is interesting to see how the authors give life to historical facts that could have considered dead by most people.
