The book revisits the 1932 kidnapping/murder of Charles Lindbergh, Jr. – and suggests a shocking solution never before considered by any author. The evidence laid out in the book – key parts of which lay unexamined for decades – exonerates Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the immigrant executed for the crime, and instead implicates Lindbergh himself. Through a page-turner that can’t be put down, the author describes an elaborate hoax and educates readers on its sociopolitical context. This includes Lindbergh’s pro-Nazi embrace of eugenics and white supremacy. A retired judge herself, the author asks readers to judge for themselves whether her theory puts to rest decades of disputes among historians and amateur sleuths. In the short time since its release, this “myth-smashing,” “compelling” book has already won high praise from leading experts on the mysterious crime of the century and fascinated lay readers of all ages as well as legal and medical professionals. Philip Roth’s novel and the HBO miniseries The Plot Against America go nowhere near unveiling the horrible truth about this famous American antisemitic “idol.”
