TRUE CRIME TUESDAY - by Janelle JansonI’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara
I feel like I have been waiting my entire life for this true crime book to be published. Michelle spent six obsessive years writing about an unsolved spree of horrific crimes in the 1970s and 1980s, which included 13 confirmed murders, over 50 rapes, and more than 100 burglaries across California, the Golden State. And it was Michelle who coined the phrase Golden State Killer to link all of his...
True Crime Tuesday: THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE
In 1994, three teenage boys were arrested for the murder of three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas.

Eventually, I gave in and tried so hard for my friends to...
