Noted Historian and true crime author, Blaine L. Pardoe, issued a review of Hauptmann's Ladder. He wrote
"I have written for university press’s before and I know they can have a reputation for being dull and boring. This story is not. Even though I had read many books on this subject, I still found myself compelled to continue on. Mr. Cahill’s book is what true crime/history books should do, frame the story in their proper context, and hit the facts."
"I highly recommend this book to true crime buffs and aficionados. The writing is solid and it is as much a history book as a true crime story – built on facts and evidence. Put it on your summer reading list!"
