Críticas:

"Shattered Sense of Innocence, an intellectual thriller unfolding at breakneck speed, is more than a mere retelling of a horrific and infamous crime. By pulling together the many threads of socioeconomic class, political corruption, illicit desire, and one agent's crusade for truth, the authors weave a novelistic tapestry that reveals a Chicago and an America at the height of 1950s conformity that were never what they pretended to be." - Ted Anton, author of Eros, Magic, and the Murder of Professor Culianu"

Reseña del editor:

In October 1955, three Chicago boys were found murdered, their bodies naked and dumped in a ditch in Robinson Woods on the city's Northwest Side. A community and a nation were shocked. In a time when such crimes against children were rare, the public was transfixed as local television stations aired stark footage of the first hours of the investigation. "Life" and "Newseek" magazines published exclusive stories the following week. When Kenneth Hansen was convicted and sentenced for the murders, the case was considered solved - until questions were raised about Hansen's presumed guilt. "Shattered Sense of Innocence: The 1955 Murders of Three Chicago Children" tells the gripping story of the three murdered boys - thirteen-year-old John Schuessler, his eleven-year-old brother, Anton, and thirteen-year-old Bobby Peterson - and the quest to find and bring to justice their killer. Authors Richard C. Lindberg and Gloria Jean Sykes recount the bungled police investigation, the failures of law enforcement, and the questionable conviction of Kenneth Hansen, and present new information concerning two suspects overlooked by police for five decades. The authors deftly examine all sides of this tragic story, drawing on exclusive interviews with law enforcement agents, with horse trainers affiliated with the so-called horse mafia, and with the man convicted of the murders, Kenneth Hansen. Like Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood", this intensely intimate account offers a rare glimpse into one community and examines how these atrocious crimes altered public perceptions nationwide. "Shattered Sense of Innocence", which is also a story of political controversy, a determined federal agent's quest for justice, and a community's loss of innocence, includes fifty illustrations.
