If you haven’t read Fatal Vision, it’s a must! It is riveting!
@Michelle thank you I will check it out!
The only one I’ve ever read was “Witness” by Amber Frey, she was Scott Petersons mistress and it was totally engrossing. I loved it, read it fairly close to when it came out. Made me want to read more true crime (but they just got added to my TBR collection ?♀️)
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
@Denise I second this!
I’m Reading this at the moment, it’s so good!
The Serial Killer Whisperer by Pete Earley. I listened to it and it was very interesting and chilling.
Drive by James Sallis (or anything by James Sallis)
whoops – not TRUE crime, just crime. But it seems true lol
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark; Mindhunter; The Devil in the White City
Thank you guys for all these suggestions. I’m going to be busy lol
Ann Rule books
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The Devil in the White City.
William m Phelps has great true crime books
Blake Pierce (a Riley Paige Mystery–Book #1 to Book #14)
In Cold Blood
the book Jaycee Dugard wrote made me cry. Devil in the White City made me paranoid. And Going Clear is about Scientology but man, there’s some criminal stuff going on in that org
Helter Skelter by Vincent Buligosi and Columbine by Dave Cullen
I agree with shelter Skelter and In Cold Blood. I’d also add I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, American Fire and The Stranger Beside Me.
‘A False Report: A True Story of Rape in America’ was amazing
Chronicles of a death foretold by garcia markez
I read one years ago about the Moors Murderers
The Ice Man by Philip Carlo
I remembered another great one- Small Sacrifices by Ann Rule.
I’ve really only read Ann Rule’s books – liked all of them.
