Ever since I read a book called Infamous Murders when I was nine years old (I sneaked it from my uncle’s bookshelf when I was on a trip to NZ and proceeded to scare myself with the stories of Lizzie Borden and John Christie) I was hooked on true crime.
If you glance at my bookshelf, library borrowing record or bedside reading pile you’d see true crime. As soon as I enter a library the first shelf I go to is non-fiction 364 (the good old Dewey Decimal Classification System) where the shelves hold my favourite genre.
Now I am grown-up, I work as a newspaper reporter where my favoured topics are police rounds and crime.
True Crime Reader is a site dedicated to the genre of true crime – reviews, news and film and television adaptations.
