Book Cover Taken From Home: A Father, a Dark Secret, and a Brutal Murder (St. Martin's True Crime Library)
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.

The young girl who was killed was 12 yrs. old, as I was. It was a sick, bizarre, unbelievable case. If you think, "what was my mother thinking by letting me know about this" don't. It was talked about everywhere, just like the coverage on the lost plane is right now !

Bringing Adam Home, by Les Standiford with Joe Matthews. Easily one of the most powerful books I've ever read and one that should be required reading for any parent. In heartbreaking, poignant prose, Standiford reveals how the safety of children in America today is all owed to the sacrifice of one: Adam Walsh.
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!

Starvation Heights: A True Story of Murder and Malice in the Woods of the Pacific Northwest by Gregg Olsen In 1911 two wealthy British heiresses, Claire and Dora Williamson, came to a sanitorium in the forests of the Pacific Northwest to undergo the revolutionary “fasting treatment” of Dr. Linda Burfield Hazzard. It was supposed to be a holiday for the 2 sisters. But within a month of arriving at what the locals called Starvation Heights, the women were emaciated shadows of their former selves
The very first true crime book I ever read. Later I studies this case in a Abnormal Psych. Class.
