I bought this book with an Audible coupon -- never heard of the author, but I grew up in that part of the country and thought it might be interesting. I was so surprised by what a great book this is -- and confounded that I hadn't heard of Steve Thayer before.
It's extremely well done, a tale of two kidnappings, the story of the famous kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby and another recreated in modern times, with the child of a very popular TV news anchor. I didn't remember much of the story of the Lindbergh kidnapping, but the historical parts, intersperced with the contemporary drama, was really well done. The scenes at Fort Snelling were so tense I had to stop what I was doing and just listen.
The whole audio production was marvelous, with the tinkling speakeasy music to introduce the historical parts, plus a great narrator. I hated for this book to end.
More from Steve Thayer, please!
