True Crime

redHere are two stories for true crime readers. “Missoula” by Jon Krakauer is set in what might be a typical college town, except between 2008 and 2013, 350 sexual assaults were reported to the Missoula police.  Krakauer’s “devastating narrative” explores why so many of the cases were mishandled, the prevalence of campus rape and the reluctance of victims to report an assault.  Krakauer “combines the tenacity of the finest tradition of investigative journalism with the profound insight of the born writer (“American Academy of Arts and Letters”).  And “Red Notice” by Bill Browder is a true story about high finance and murder in Putin’s Russia.  When Browder’s Moscow office was raided, his attorney, Sergei Magnitsky, uncovered a  vast criminal enterprise.  A month after Sergei testified, he was arrested and killed while in detention. What follows is “an impassioned personal broadside against the Kremlin.” (Financial Times).
