Anything by M William Phelps, @Caitlin right now I am reading Beautifully Cruel by M William Phelps
Im reading one by Phelps right now too ?
Which one Jessica ??
I am reading Dangerously Cruel now. I remember seeing this case on Dateline or 48 Hours.
Oh really @Lee..I’ll know if I have once I get started in an hour or so !!!
“Helter Skelter.” IMO the PREMIERE tc book.
Agreed. I have that one.
Perfect Victim: The True Story of the Girl in the Box: Christine McGuire
@Jessica, Anne Rule was probably my favorite True Crime author. Another book….Doc by Jack Olson …. and Son by Jack @Yolanda Google True Crime Books and see what comes up.
Wonderful. Im reading one by Anne Rule also right now. Stranger Beside Me. I found it with my stash from Salvation Army yesterday believe it or not. I was so excited.
That was one of my favorites!!! Anne Rule is GREAT!
Definitely one I’ve been hearing about for a long time and never thought I’d find ?
Has anyone read My Friend Dahmer?
Yes! I loved it
I have it and love it. Wished they would have had the film playing somewhere near me but only 50 cities across America played it.
Is it gonna hit theatres that you know of?
Not in the close area. Closest is over an hour away and would have to find a sitter and all so I doubt I will be able to see it until it’s released on dvd or available for stream.
I saw it Thursday night. It was excellent!
That’s awesome! I’m more excited now.

Anything by Ann Rule.
I read a book once and forgot the author and title, but it was awesome. It was about bank robbers who lived where I grew up. Going to google it.
It was Ann Rule, lol Awesome ]read!!
One of my favorites of Ann Rule’s.
@Lisa I grew up where these people did.
Oh really? How interesting @Rebecca. Did you ever see the tree house scurlock built?
@Lisa No, I believe that was in Washington state or Oregon, where they did their bank robberies. I have been by the sculptor’s studio in Great Falls, VA, where I lived as a child. Scurlock grew up in Reston, which was minutes away from me. I can’t remember why they went so far away to rob banks. It has been years since I’ve read this, but it was such a great read.
Yes, it’s a great read. I’d forgotten that scurlock was originally from Va. It has been awhile since I read it. lol It’s been one of my favorites of Ann’s ever since I read it.
@Lisa Mine, too and I have read many of her books.
So do I. lol Her books are ones that I’ll read over n over again.
I can’t remember why they went so far away to Rob banks either..but that book really was interesting..so bizarre ! For some reason ,Spokane ,Washington is coming to me ?
@Juliana I think you are right
I think they didn’t want to hit banks to close to home.
@Lisa that could have been it, they had a connection in Washington, not sure what
Yeah..I’m thinking for some reason..a woman ,school ,etc. Spurlock had been out there a little while.
Somebody dig up the book..lololol..I gave mine away awhile back !
I think one of the boys was from around there. They met in Hawaii and wound up in Washington State.
@Lisa..you’ve got to say you’re from NORTH CAROLINA..it’s not just you and I on here..lolol lmao
I’ve read a lot of Ann Rule books but apparently missed this one…you got me interested now being a VA girl with relatives that lived in Spokane. Must read this! lol
@Kathy It was so good. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it was a really good read, they went all out in their robberies, wore prosthetic makeup. I think t was so intriguing for me because some of them grew up where I did.
I’m going to buy it!
Murder By Family – Kent Whitaker. It is chilling!!!
Helter Skelter and In Cold Blood are two of my favorites.
They were both great.
Die For Me(Leonard Lake/Charles Ng)…Lethal Marriage(Paul Bernardo/Karla Homolka)…
Anything by Ann Rule, Katherine Casey, Caitlin Rother, Gregg Olsen, Jack Olsen…..oh the list goes on. You can’t go wrong with any of the authors that I just mentioned. 🙂
Thank you, @Denise!
True, Denise. Especially Ann Rule, my favorite. RIP.
anything about The Krays.
Devil in the White City by Erik Larson.
Thank you all so much!
Or the good nurse
Party Time by Shaun Atwood.
The Fact of a Body. American Fire. We Have Your Daughter
Buried Dreams by Tim Cahill
The Stranger beside me.
Death Sentence by Jerry Bledsoe, was really good. and I’m starting The Dating Game Killer today!
I have the Dating Game Killer…started it but didn’t finish. One of these days I will.
Why didn’t you finish it? You didn’t like it?
It was okay…I’m usually a big true crime reader but I also read by my mood…you know sometimes I feel like I need something light or funny…so maybe it was just me. I keep saying I’m going to go back and read it but have read a lot more books – no true crime
I understand, It was the opposite for me, I just finished The Christmas Train and that was TOO light for me, not my normal read, I kind of hurried through it so I could dive into Dating game killer LOL
Christmas train was good tho. I try to read a holiday book every year 🙂
Now you got me thinking about going back to the book…hmmm lol
Check out the Author Ann Rule.
Ooo I like her too.
Midnight in the garden of Good and evil by Berendt is the best true crime I have ever read, hands down. It’s an older title, but a classic. Reads like a novel.
Death Cruise by Don Davis; Into the Water by Diane Fanning Happened in my hometown…my husband and I worked for an ambulance service and assisted with the search and I ran volunteer rescue with the father and sister of one victim.
