IN 1925, the peaceful Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa found itself involved in mystery and horror. Eight-year-old Arthur “Buddy” Schumacher Jr. was last seen by three of his friends after they hopped off a freight train they’d jumped to get a ride to a nearby swimming hole. For seven weeks, the community and state searched desperately to find the boy until his body was found just a mile from his house with his clothing torn and a handkerchief shoved down his throat. The police pursued several promising leads, but to no avail.

Great attention to the details, twists and turns in the investigation makes this a page-turner. It could be any small town in the early 20th century, and the national exposure and response from the public when we did not have the media to spread the word makes for a fascinating read! A real history lesson for the newspaper reporting and lack of forensics during this period.
This true story of the death of Buddy is well written and has been well-researched. I enjoyed this book.
Well done book by an outstanding reporter. A page turner. Read it in one sitting. I hope there's a follow up.
