The Crime of the Century

True Crime

The most mysterious and riveting crime of the 20th century was the 1932 kidnapping and murder of the infant son of Charles A. Lindbergh, the American aviator hero. The case involved a cast of characters to delight any author of detective novels. In the end, as a captivated nation followed the details, a sensational trial and the conviction of a single defendant settled the affair—but to almost no one’s satisfaction. Lloyd Gardner tells the story of the Lindbergh kidnapping and why it remains the Crime of the Century, as much a mystery as it ever was.
