My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book messed with my head in the best way. I say in my profile that I love books that overturn my apple cart. Apples everywhere on my path. I am actually a little creeped out, to be honest.

1. There was no kidnapping. I won’t spoil it for you, but that poor baby was not kidnapped.

2. Lindbergh was this strange figure who could just approach anyone and tell them he was now working for/with them…and it was so. We should never give anyone that much power again. No education or qualifications, and he would be working on scientific or government projects because he wanted to. Insane.

3. Charles Lindbergh was not a good person at all. He was a controlling narcissist and a Nazi sympathizer.

4. Everything you have heard about this case–how the board from Bruno Hauptmann’s attic perfectly matched the missing rung of the ladder, for instance–is wrong.

Trust me, this book is the definitive work on the case, written from all available case documents, including some that were private until given to the author, and it took eight years to research and write.
