I frequent the "Book" forum quite a bit since I am an inveterate bibliophile. But, I can also see where this thread could also be here in True Crime. I am not much of a fan of some of the newer true crime writers. I am of the old school, such as, Ann Rule, In Cold Blood, Helter Skelter, The Onionfield.....etc....

Have you read "Chasing the Devil" by Sheriff David Reichert? He's the cop who vowed to find the green river killer no matter how long it took. Quite riveting read based on first hand account. More so than "The Stranger Beside Me."

Forensic science is why I read true crimes.

We talk books here, too! True Crime is one of the most popular genres in the world, so why not?

A few all-time faves when it comes to husband killing wife:

For Laci
By Persons Unknown: the Strange Death Of Christine Demeter
Dial M: The Murder Of Carol Thompson
Reasonable Doubt
Afraid Of The Dark
