message 1: by Corey (new)

Corey Kincaid I'm surprised Devil in the White City is not on this list.


message 2: by William (new)

William Cook It is a fictional novel that uses factual characters and occurrences. IE, it is not non-fiction.


message 3: by Kellie (new)

Kellie Curtin It is a non-fiction book written in a novelistic style.
