Publisher's Summary

One of the most sensational crimes of the 20th century took place when two wealthy young men decided to commit the perfect crime. Travel back in time to learn of how they planned their dastardly deed. From the carefully laid out plans for ransom and the brutal murder of a young boy, these two young men chose path which weaved through the Cook County courtroom with America's most famous attorney who slipped them off the hangman's gallows into prison for life.
With all the details of today's modern documentaries the very words of the killers themselves will spellbind the listener and have all parents noting the whereabouts of their children. Danger lurks at all times, often from those who know your child. This true crime story is as relevant today as it was to the family of young Bobby Franks in 1924 when he was murdered by the depravity of Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold.

2 self entitled geniuses commit a stupid murder!

A true crime story which is hard to believe that two geniuses could have actually thought they could accomplish. These two thought they were entitled and above the laws of the land. They thought they could commit the perfect murder and would not be caught. However, these two were probably some of the stupidest criminals ever. Using actual news, police reports & trial documents, the authors interweave them amongst the narrative to present the story of these young men who rather than committing the perfect murder, ended up doing the craziest one. This is a one sitting type of book because you just have to find out the details of the stupid ongoings.

A good story and well read

Having lived in Chicago, I could picture the story as it unfolded. Listening to it was in ways better than reading it.
