THE LINDBERGH KIDNAPPING  SUSPECT NO. 1:  THE MAN WHO GOT AWAY
By Lise Pearlman [Regent Press September 1 2020]

SuspectNo1_w_higher res award.png

In the depths of the Depression, millions worldwide followed every twist and turn of the Lindbergh baby kidnap/murder. Yet what was reported was largely fake news. Nearly a century after undocumented immigrant Bruno Richard Hauptmann was executed for the dastardly crime, questions still linger. If the wrong man was convicted, who did it? When? Where? Why? How?

 

The answers this book suggests have eluded all prior authors. Extensive research into dusty archives yielded crucial forensic evidence never before analyzed. Readers are invited to re-examine "the crime of the century" with fresh eyes focused on a key suspect -- a slim man wearing a fedora  that obscured his face. He was spotted with a ladder in his car near the Lindberghs' driveway early that fateful night. The police let an insider who fit that description oversee the entire investigation -- the boy's father, international hero Charles Lindbergh.

 

Abuse of power, amorality and xenophobia all feature in this saga set in an era dominated by white supremacists and social Darwinists. If Lindbergh was Suspect No. 1, the man who got away, what was his motive? Who else was involved? Who helped cover up the crime?

 

Read this book and judge for yourself.
