MASTER DETECTIVE, THE LIFE AND CRIMES OF ELLIS PARKER, AMERICAS REAL LIFE SHERLOCK HOLMES by John Reisinger: With a title like this, the book better be good, and it is. Ellis Parker conducted an independent three-year investigation onto the crime of the century the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby and concluded that the wrong man, Bruno Hauptmann, had been arrested, tried and convicted for the crime. Even though Parker had a confession from the man he claimed was the real killer, Hauptmann was executed as scheduled. Was Parker right? Did an innocent man die? You will have to decide for yourself. Dont let the long title turn you off. This one reads like fiction, well written fiction.
