BW31: Crime Spree - True Crime


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. 

Studies in Murder by Edmund Pearson

·      In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

·       The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule

·       Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann

·        The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson


Challenge: Lock your doors, turn on your lights, and pick up a True Crime mystery that won’t keep you up at night.

Our A to Z and Back Again letter of the week is V and Vanguard.
