Can the kidnapper be caught?

Charles Lindbergh was a very famous public figure whose son was kidnapped from his crib. Much of the investigation was based on a series of ransom notes which ultimately led to the conviction of a suspect.High-interest topics, real stories, engaging design, and astonishing photos are the building blocks of the XBooks, a new series of books designed to engage and motivate reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike. How can DNA help a convicted person prove their innocence? How did a burglar steal from a store without leaving any fingerprints? Why was the tiny town in Hardin, Missouri, awash with skeletons after a huge flood? With topics based in science, these action-packed books will help students unlock the power and pleasure of reading... and always ask for more!
