A couple years back, I got hooked on "true crime books" set in the 1800s or early 1900s... call them "historic true crime" or maybe even "literary true crime" because of the quality of the writing. (This isn't populist Ann Rule stuff!) Here's one of my favorites from that sub-genre, about a notorious 1860 British murder, the enigmatic Scotland Yard detective assigned to solve it, the aftermath, and how the detective (Jack Whicher) inspired the writings of Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins.

I am a bit of a true crime junkie. This was particularly enjoyable because it described the origins of modern policing. A guilty pleasure without the guilt!

I do like the true crime. I am a little afraid of what they'll do with the movie.

The very first true crime book I ever read. Later I studies this case in a Abnormal Psych. Class.
