I learned an awful lot about every single element about the case from Mr. Melsky's book.
I learned that everything and everyone is suspect. So it hasn't solved a darn thing for me -- yet. To quote Sue, "everything, including the kitchen sink," is in it, but nothing is satisfactorily analyzed, and nothing of substance is concluded. Will Vol. 2 begin that awesome task??? If it does, it will be difficult to go back to vol.1 to check some things bec. there is no index. Well, maybe vol. 2 will be more to the points and there will be no need to look up anything in vol.1. LEt's hope so! The lack of proofreading still annoys me, I am sorry to say. SOme sentences don't make sense at first reading, and I have to stop to re-read. It interrupts my trend of thought. I'm getting old, and I need things to be a little clearer! The fact that Mike spent so many years doing this research hasn't paid off yet. All I can say is that it makes fascinating reading but it only confuses me -- the last thing I wanted it to do!

        I don't believe Lindbergh had any involvement in the case. its so silly in a live debate these hauptmann was a great guy books don't cut it for me

              What's in your book is anything but conclusive as it relates to this account. Both Moore (at about 8:25 pm) and the Conover's (6:30 - 6:45 pm) saw a non-descript car in the dark, presumably both... more
