Yes, yes, it’s spooky season... but the world itself is already so scary. So, if you’re looking for a good fright or just an eerie feeling to keep you company as the air gets nippier, might I recommend some true crime books? The true crime genre is rightly maligned—particularly in its podcast form—but I find nonfiction books take what I love about crime stories (quests for justice, scary circumstances) and make the genre much less skeevy. That is, if you choose the right ones. This weekend, pick up Mark O’Connell’s A Thread of Violence: A Story of Truth, Invention, and Murder or Elon Green’s Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York. And if you need more, here is my complete list of recommendations. —CC
