It is always interesting to me to take note of the stories in the news that move folks the most, the unsolved or potentially wrongly-"solved" tragedies that mark our shared cultural history in America. So it is no wonder I truly enjoyed Sleeping Dogs, it sheds new light on the scope and context of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping/murder and offers new case details that plainly suggest that the whole case might have been "solved" too quickly with the wrong man put to death for a crime he did not commit.
If you are a follower of the Lindbergh family story and tragedy, you HAVE to read this book. If you are not currently educated on the case, you HAVE to read this book. The details will haunt and prod you. You will question not only the hows and whys but the what ifs. You will wonder at the motivation not only of the kidnappers/killers of poor baby Lindbergh but of any legal "justice" system that can work so quickly to railroad a potentially innocent man right into the electric chair.
