Riassunto: The kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh's infant son, and the subsequent trial and execution of Bruno Richard Hauptmann, have been a source of fascination for more than 70 years. Now, for the first time, William Norris delves into sources of information ignored by previous investigators and comes up with the identity of the true culprit.
About the Author: William Norris has been a professional writer since joining his local newspaper as an apprentice reporter at the age of 16. After working for a variety of newspapers in England and Africa, he was appointed Parliamentary Correspondent to the prestigious Times (of London) ten years later - one of the youngest ever to gain this position. He held the post for seven years, revolutionising the art of the "parliamentary sketch", then transferred to become Africa Correspondent for The Times, covering diplomatic assignments and wars in Biafra, Angola, the Congo, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. He moved to ITN as Political Correspondent in 1968, and also covered numerous overseas assignments including the Paris riots of that year.
After turning freelance in 1980, Norris moved to the United States where he worked under contract for The Times and other publications for 13 years.
He became Associate Director of the PressWise Trust (a British media ethics charity) in 1997, and still holds this post after retiring to live in France three years ago.
Norris is the author of seven previous books, four of which: "The Man Who Fell from the Sky," "Willful Misconduct," "The Badger Game," and "SnowBird" are available from SynergEbooks. "A Talent to Deceive," which was 15 years in preparation, was initially inspired by his interest in aviation. He is a keen amateur pilot and once built his own experimental aircraft to fly across the United States.
He is also an experienced public speaker, having addressed such varied venues as a World Health Organisation conference in Moscow, a European Union conference on journalistic ethics in Cyprus (at both of which he was the keynote speaker), and international post-graduate students at the University of London. A member emeritus of the Academy of Senior Professionals at Florida's Eckerd College, he now spends much of his time advising journalistic students.
