John Burns So no-one else voted for the awesome Homicide by david simon?


message 3: by Julie (new)

Julie Apparently some people don't realize that true crime means NONFICTION!!! Water for Elephants, The Stand etc. are not true crime books.


message 4: by Julie (new)

Julie Removed the entire fantasy series by W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear from this list. It has nothing to do with true crime.


message 5: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed five novels.


message 6: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Steven King and Anne Rice are not True Crime.


message 7: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Deleted those.


message 8: by Dina (new)

Dina Di Mambro True Hollywood Noir: Filmland Mysteries and Murders

Please don't delete from list. Definitely nonfiction. Recent interview with Mickey Cohen's right hand man. Bugsy Siegel and mob stories. True Hollywood crime from the 20s to Robert Blake in 2001.

Deleted.
