The Lost Brothers (Jack El-Hai)Jack El-Hai will be at TPT in the street-level lobby on Thursday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. for the launch of his new book, The Lost Brothers: A Family's Decades-Long Search. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP here.


This is the story of one of the oldest known active missing-child investigations: the 1951 disappearance of the three Klein brothers in Minneapolis. An intimate portrait of a parent’s worst nightmare and its terrible toll on a family, the book is also a genuine mystery, spinning out suspense at every missed turn or potential lead, along with its hope for resolution.


"Poignant and compelling, The Lost Brothers asserts that the three vanished boys still deserve justice and to finally be found." —Foreword

"As a longtime TV crime reporter, I found unsolved missing children cases to be exceptionally heartbreaking and impossible to forget. To this day, one of the most haunting of those stories is the mysterious disappearance of the Klein brothers. How could three young boys just vanish after walking to a nearby park and remain missing so many years later? Jack El-Hai offers a gripping, intimate look at this nearly seventy-year-old case. Superbly written and researched, the book evinces the agony of the boys’ parents, who steadfastly refused to believe the police conclusion of drowning. El-Hai also conveys the passionate determination of more recent investigators to solve the case. This enthralling book is sure to captivate readers and, I hope, keep investigative interest alive." —Caroline Lowe, investigative journalist
