What's your favorite true crime read?
If you're like me, I try to strike a balance with my crime reads. When I'm looking for a total escape, I enjoy a good thriller and a glass of wine, other times, a cozy mystery and a cup of tea. I might even reach for a biography or a well-researched true crime read. But is a nonfiction mystery with terrifying villains more terrifying than true crime? I'll let you decide...
