True Crime

Post by jennawash » 25 Apr 2018, 19:08

I love true crime books. I enjoy reading about court room drama or investigative proceedings to find a "who dun it." I have been reading through several books about the murder of Travis Alexander in 2008 and I feel like I'm ready to move on to my next case.
Who has some recommendations?

]Have you read In Cold Blood by Truman Capote? There's a good review (removed by mod).

You could start with The Stranger Beside Me, and read up on Ted Bundy - there's also Small Sacrifices, which is also Ann Rule. The book "Columbine," by Dave Cullen, is really good. It's THE book when it comes to Columbine. There's tons of stuff on the West Memphis Three, and it's still unsolved. Oh, and Devil in the White City!

I have not read it, but it sounds amazing! The review hooked me right away. I will do some research on the crime and then this will definitely get put on my reading list! Thank you!
