This is a creative non-fiction book about the kidnapping of famed aviator Charles Lindbergh's twenty month-old son, Charles Jr. Using new information from Arthur Jones who served on death row with Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the man convicted and executed for the crime, this tragic event has been re-created. Jones claimed Hauptmann had him swear not to say anything about the kidnapping until after his death in 1936. For forty years, Jones attempted to disseminate the information but was unsuccessful in getting anyone to listen, including three New Jersey governors. Using this new information, this book re-creates the entire kidnapping. It also goes into great detail on Charles Lindbergh's strange personality and his role in the crime and investigation. Jones claimed the kidnapping was the work of a loosely organized ring of conspirators that included Hauptmann. A fascinating story, excellent imagery and well defined characters make this book a must read.
