The Man with the Candy (about Dean Corll/Wayne Henley/David Brooks) by Jack Olson (all of his books are really well written)

Anything and everything by Harold Schecter

Mindhunter by John Douglas is famous but worth it (actually, get any of his books. He’s a bit full of himself, but there’s a reason for it, he was excellent at his job)

The World’s End Murders (the final verdict) by Tom Wood and David Johnston (I had to search for this book. I don’t know how readily available it is)

The Complete Jack the Ripper by Donald Rumbelow

The Devil in the White City (also famous but also totally worth it) by Erik Larson

The Yoga Store Murder by Dan Morse

September Sacrifice by Mark Horner

I’ll be Gone in the Dark is new and pretty famous right now but worth the read

To Die For by Kathy Braidhill

A Twisted Faith by Gregg Olsen (it will probably frustrate and annoy you and there’s very little about the victim in this book, but it’s an effed up story and I think everyone should read it.)

I don’t know if it’s good, but I’m about to start reading Anne Perry and the Murder of the Century by Peter Graham. If you’ve seen Peter Jackson’s “Heavenly Creatures” it’s the true story about that crime.

That’s just a few that I have on my shelves and think are pretty good. I’m sure there will be a ton more recommendations that I will also write down and read. 😀

Edit: added author to The Man with the Candy
