Intrigue, suspense and perhaps a shudder awaits with these stories of real-life crimes. Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann (Lost City of Z) recounts a series of startling murders on the oil-rich Osage reservation in the 1920’s, eventually prompting the FBI to intervene. Grann has written “a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction”. Midnight Assassin by Skip Hollandsworth transports readers to a moonless New Year’s Eve in 1884, when an unknown killer began to terrorize Austin Texas, showing no regard to gender, age or class. Gosnell by Ann McElhinney looks at controversial abortion provider who was convicted of murdering three infants in a “graphic” and “harrowing” account. The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel tells how hermit Christopher Knight survived for three decades in the woods of central Maine, sometimes pilfering supplies from vacation houses.
