Book Description Hutchinson, London, 1968. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Illustrated (illustrator). First UK Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Light brown cloth with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership inscription. Illustrations. 304 pages clean and tight. On 1 July 1874, fou?-yea old Charley Ross was playing outside his home in the fashionable Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when two strange men lifted him into a wagon and carried him away. Three days later, on 4 July, Christian K. Ross received this letter: July 3-Mr. Ros-be not uneasy you son charly bruster be al writ we is got him and no powers on earth can deliver out of our hand-You wil hay two pay us be for you git him from us-an pay us a big cent to. So began a crime which shocked a nation and became a legend. To this point in America's history, the kidnapping of a child for ransom was unheard of and it wasn't until the 1 920s that such a crime was committed again. The Ross case came, therefore, as a sudden and unexpected shock-to the family, the citizens of Philadelphia, the Press and (above all) the police, whose antiquated detective methods proved totally inadequate. Thanks to thorough and painstaking research, the author has unearthed the extraordinary sequence of events, the bizarre correspondence between the frantic father and the kidnappers, the scandalous attacks on the suffering family by irresponsible newspapers, the slow and unfruitful steps taken by the inefficient police, the hundred-andone false trails, the rush of claimants throughout the country to be the missing child, and the climax of the dramatic events which solved the mystery of the kidnapping without revealing the fate of little Charley Ross. Norman Zierold has written not only an absorbing chapter in the history of crime but also a fascinating and tragic human story. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 129273
