Favorite True Crime Book?
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.
