PIs and Spies: true crime

beforeAmerican Fire  by Monica Hesse explores a bizarre five-month crime spree in rural Accomack County, Va., where over 80 arsons were committed.  At the heart of the crimes? A “gothic love story gone wrong”.   The Bettencourt Affair by Thomas Sanctan tells how a con artist got inside the L’Oreal fortune, and spilled dirt on their shadowy corporate doings.  Before we Were Yours by Lisa Wingate is a novel based on a real-life scandal, in which the director of a Memphis-based adoption organization kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country.  “Make sure this one is on your radar. It should not be missed” (Huffington Post).
