“In Cold Blood” by Truman Capote (1966)
Going on my tbr list thank you!
It is an old, well written, true classic.
It’s actually the first of its kind .. they thought it was pretty ballsy for Capote because up till that time no one ever dared write such a book , I’ve read it a few times
True Crime Addict: My search for Maura Murray by James Renner
Anything by Ann Rule–Small Sacrifices and The Stranger Beside Me are especially good
In cold blood
Strange Piece of Paradise by Terri Jentz
Devil in the White City by Eric Larsen
Anything by Ann Rule!
Perfect Victim by Christine McGuire and Carla Norton.
Jack Olson is another good True Crime author.
1 by leslie thomas, cant remember title, as not really my gene, but my hubby used to b security gaurd and when his dad got ill i used to go up and cover for couple of hours (no security gaurd) so he could take his mum to hospital, it was only thing to stop boredom
I’ve read a couple of books about the Moors murderers, Ian Brady and Myra Hindley
The Snake and The Spider hands down!!!
Say You Love Satan by David St. Clair
And the sea will tell
I let you go
The Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three by Mara Leveritt
Small Sacrifices by Ann Rule.
That’s a heartbreaking story.
The Jigsaw Man by Paul Britton
I’ve not heard of this.
It’s more a book about criminal profiling in Britain and when the police first started using it with varying degrees of success (like the Rachel Nickell murder on Wimbledon Common) so it’s true crime with a real investigative slant. I read it many years ago – I hope it’s still available to buy
On the Farm by Stevie Cameron – though it is beyond rage inducing in some places.
The Bible 2: Electric Boogaloo
Deliver us from Evil by David A. Yallop, an excellent book about Peter Sutcliffe, the infamous brutal and deranged Yorkshire Ripper and the awful police incompetence, as the first victims were “only” prostitutes, . https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/feb/12/yorkshire-ripper-peter-sutcliffe-wont-face-new-charges-police-say
