Favorite True Crime Book?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I want to say I am sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum. I found it odd there wasn't just a books section but then I read the description of this forum. If I somehow misconstrued the description, I am sorry. I respect the site and it's policies.

So, ANYWAY, getting passed that...I am a HUGE true crime buff. I have read a lot of true crime books. I was curious to know, to those of you that are into true crime or even if you're not and have just happened to read a really good one; what is your favourite true crime book? Are you reading one right now or did you read one recently?

My answers, which I would like to recommend to everyone who are into things like this:

Right now I am reading Columbine by Dave Cullen. It is an interesting read.

My all-time favorite thusfar is Invisible Darkness by Stephen Williams (I also enjoyed his follow-up, Karla: A Pact With The Devil but not as much). They are both fascinating reads. I would recommend them to both anyone who is not familiar with the case of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka or to anyone who has been interested in the case. I think this is the most factual book written about them as well, it doesn't sugar-coat and paint Karla as a victim. Their story is twisted and unreal and Williams tells it in great detail with information not included in some of the other books out there.
