Sleeping Dogs: A true story of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.
A deathbed confession. A gun encased in concrete. And the possibility both could have kept Bruno Richard Hauptmann from going to the electric chair for the kidnap and murder of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. When journalist Michael Foldes hears the story of an upstate NY family who could have known the killers, he teases out details in the 80-year-old case that plausibly point to Hauptmann’s innocence.
I recently read this book and recommend it highly. In fact I am rereading it a second time. There is a lot to think about, especially facts that were perhaps swept under the rug when it happened back then. The book makes you want to head to Trenton, NJ and start digging into the old State Police files about this case as the author did.
