The author makes a good case and the book flows very well. His story is a lot more believable than the books that say Charles Lindberg or his sister in law killed the baby.

Robert Zorn presents a very compelling argument for the involvement of John Knoll in the infamous Lindbergh kidnapping case. He claims his father knew one of the men who were in on the scheme to defraud the Lindbergh’s by stealing their first born child. Most people who have examined the case from the moment of the crime until today, feel that there is no way one person could have been responsible. Cemetery John entered the story in a way that has mystified and baffled most crime experts. Even in a case that is this strange and filled with twists and turns and bungled actions on behalf of almost everyone involved, the clues seem to add up to Zorn’s conclusions. This is one of the most interesting books on the subject that I have read in a long time.
