Police Captain Connects Seattle’s Seamy Past
To “Crime of the Century”

On March 1, 1932 a bold kidnapping would forever change the course of police work and the FBI. It would become known around the world as “The Crime of the Century.” 77 years later, what do the Lindbergh kidnapping, Seattle, and Ann Rule have in common? All are connected to Northwest author and Seattle Police Captain Neil Low’s debut novel, Thick as Thieves.

Ending 2008 as the #3 mystery trade paperback sold at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop, Thick as Thieves is Seattle in the 1940’s: a rain-drenched harbor of greed, sex, and corruption--and now a mysterious murder. With his rich imagination, Low spins a tale of mystery that leads all the way to the “Crime of the Century”—the Lindbergh kidnapping.

Ann Rule, New York Times best selling author and true crime expert, had this to say about Low’s debut, “No one can write about cops and robbers like a real police officer. When they are good, they are very, very good, and Captain Neil Low is good as he magically captures another era in his new book. Reading it is akin to stepping into a film noir, shadowy, smoky, and shocking. . .This is a great book, alive with action . . . Set aside a few days to read it because you won’t want to stop.”
