"If I had only one book to read on the Lindbergh case I should . . . choose Fisher's. It is balanced, impartial, and contains much material not to be found elsewhere."--Francis Russell, The New York Review of Books "Fisher . . . goes against the revisionist tide and argues strongly--and persuasively--for Hauptmann's guilt . . . a compelling book."--Patrick Reardon, Chicago ...more

This book is so damned exciting! I could hardly put it down. It has all the stuff I like: historical American heroes, shady german characters, clever detectives, late-night meetings in the cemetery, secret letters and correspondence through newspaper ads, autopsies, courtroom drama and suspense, etc., etc. There are a number of glaring typos in this book, for some reason.
This is an exhaustive...and I mean EXHAUSTIVE account of the kidnapping and trial. Parts are interesting, but wow could we have used an editor.

An excellent analysis of the Lindbergh case by an ex-FBI agent.
