The backstory for my latest novel, WHAT YOU DID is inspired by a true event that took place back in 1956, when a young infant named Peter Weinberger was kidnapped from his baby carriage while he was sleeping outside.
The kidnapper asked for a ransom but was spooked by the press and police when he came to drop the child off at the meeting point. Instead he left him in a bush where he wasn’t found until it was too late. It is such a devastating story and when I read it, I knew that I had to write about it. The thought of your child disappearing while sleeping in the safety of your front yard is to terrifying, I can hardly stand it.
