Cemetery John: The Undiscovered Mastermind of the Lindbergh Kidnapping
Title: Cemetery John: The Undiscovered Mastermind of the Lindbergh Kidnapping
Author: Robert Zorn
For eighty years, the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh’s infant son has gone unsolved. Evidence has discredited the notion that Bruno Richard Hauptmann acted alone. In this account Robert Zorn clears away decades of ungrounded speculation surrounding the case.
Using personal possessions and documents, never-before-seen photographs, new forensic evidence, and extensive research, Robert Zorn has written a shocking and captivating account of the crime and the original “Trial of the Century.” From the ecstatic riots that followed the Spirit of St. Louis on either side of the Atlantic, to the tragic night that would shake America’s sense of security, to the horror of the New Jersey morgue where Lindbergh insisted on verifying the identity of his son, Zorn’s skillful treatment meets this larger-than-life story and gives it definitive shape by revealing the true events behind the crime, for the first time.
