Carrie Hagen's WE IS GOT HIM December Events

Calling all Pennsylvanians! Carrie Hagen, author of We Is Got Him will be hitting the road this December, visiting bookstores and libraries throughout the Keystone State to meet her fans, answer questions, and read excerpts from her story of the 1874 kidnapping of Charley Ross. Four year old Ross was the victim of the first highly publicized kidnapping for ransom in America, and Hagen’s We Is Got Him is a deeply researched and critically acclaimed account of Charley’s abduction, as well as the reaction his disappearance drew from his family, the media, and the public at large.

Praise for WE IS GOT HIM

"Relentlessly suspenseful . . . As sad and unsettling as this tale is, Hagen tells it with the splendidly compelling narrative momentum of a contemporary true-crime writer, with the kind of lively historic detail that may inspire new walking tours of Germantown and South Philadelphia . . . This is an elegantly told, superbly accomplished history of good and bad intentions gone awry." – Philadelphia Inquirer

"We Is Got Him is a riveting tale of the comprehensive search for a missing four-year-old boy from Germantown, PA, in 1874 . . . A must- read for those interested in true crime and law enforcement history.” – Library Journal

"Hagen’s writing balances journalistic sincerity and dispassion with exciting precision." – Publishers Weekly

“A slice of American crime history both instructive and tragically entertaining." – Kirkus
