Description

The spellbinding story of one of the most celebrated kidnapping cases in American history-the kidnapping of Bobby Dunbar-and a haunting family mystery that took almost a century to solve. THE MOST NOTORIOUS KIDNAPPING CASE IN AMERICAN HISTORY In 1912, four-year-old Bobby Dunbar went missing in the Louisiana swamps. After an eight-month search that electrified the country and destroyed Bobby's parents, the boy was found, filthy and hardly recognizable. A wandering piano tuner was arrested and charged with kidnapping- a crime then punishable by death. But when a destitute single mother came forward from North Carolina to claim the boy as her son, not the lost Bobby Dunbar, the case became a high-pitched battle over custody-and identity-that divided the South. A gripping historical mystery, A Case for Solomon chronicles the epic century-long effort to unravel the startling truth.
