  1. Haven’t read any true crime story books lately, but remember reading In Cold Blood, Helter Skelter, and books by Ann Rule, Joe Mc Ginnis, and Patricia Cornwall! Would love to read The Murder List! Thanks for the chance!


    1. The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott. But no one has anything over on Hank Philippi Ryan when it comes to writing crime stories. To me, she’s the best of the best! The Murder List is a must read for me and I thank you so much for the chance.


  2. I have never read a true crime story. Looking forward to reading The Murder List. Thank you for the opportunity!


  3. I did read STAR SPANGLED SCANDALS a few months ago and I’m not sure if this fits a true crime book. I love all mysteries and especially legal drama. THE MURDER LIST immediately caught my eye and I’d love to read and share my thoughts on this book.


  4. I know The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead doesn’t fall under the True Crime genre, but it is based on a true story of an ongoing crime. I haven’t read an Ann Rule book in awhile, but those would be official True Crime.


  5. Nothing recent. In Cold Blood is a book I reread at times because it’s that good. Would love to read this one. Thanks for the opportunity.
