    Michael Connelly

    Since I grew up in the Los Angeles area...all his stories ( even the ones made up ) is like I'm right there. I know the places he writes about and actually been to a few. But the most intriguing were the police reports and old crime incident reports I studied in police academy...

    My "fascination" began when the horrific crimes of Dahmer were unveiled.  How could this happen so close to home?  How, what, who, how many, but most importantly WHY?  I have been able to pick up some great finds at the used book store, plus most...

    this maybe crazy but one of the true crime books

    that really messed with my head was called "Life with Billy". He was definitely a sick sadistic piece of ****. I have to say when he was killed the world was less one waste of flesh *******.

    True Crime

    I go through genre periods; however, no matter what other genre I am currently reading, true crime stories remain a constant.  I love to read the twists and turns of the human mind--both as the criminal sees life and as the person/people responsible for catching him/her.  One...
