Happy Sunday! August is upon us and our newest crime spree category brought to us by Sandy and Amy is all about True Crime.
True Crime is a genre with no middle ground—readers either love it or have no stomach for true examples of the darker side of human behavior. The modern genre started with Edmund Pearson in the 1920s and continues today in dozens of forms of media, from books to podcasts.
