I went down a rabbit hole learning a bit about the kidnapping of the Heineken billionaire in the 1980‘s. And found this book. I wouldn‘t recommend it from any aspect, writing or from the kidnapping. It was more about the author testifying against her brother and the hell her family lived by being associated with a “mobster”. Stilted language and long. But I finished. 🙄

The summer I graduated high school the Oregon & national news was filled with the story of Diane Downs, accused of shooting her 3 young children, basically because she became obsessed with a married man who did not want children. Currently serving her sentence (+5 years for escaping an Oregon prison for 10 days) in California, she was denied parole twice & is eligible to try again in 2021. Let's hope this #Criminal stays behind bars.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Yikes!!! I have no recollection of this! 6mo

Imagining that Piper may have felt like a #criminal to her fiancé when her drug smuggling life catches up to her & she ultimately ends up serving time in prison. #dontpanic-her family & fiancé are supportive of her through this time.

Eggs I see what you did there🤓🤓 6mo

#LilithJuly I just finished reading this, and I really enjoyed this sequel to The Lincoln Lawyer. Mickey Haller is thrown back into being a full-time #Criminal defense attorney when he's assigned to take over the practice of a lawyer who died. One of his cases is the high-profile case of a Hollywood big-wig.

Crazeedi May have to read this! I enjoyed Lincoln lawyer 6mo

In Cold Blood | Truman Capote
post image


(Day 17 - #Criminal)

*It was absolutely criminal—what Perry Smith (center left, with Capote) and Richard Hickock (bottom left) did to the Clutter family (top right, Herb & Bonnie, parents; center right, son, Kenyon; bottom right, daughter, Nancy) in 1959. When Truman Capote (bottom center) and Harper Lee traveled to Holcomb, Kansas to report on the murders, the result was “In Cold Blood” which, arguably, started the true-crime genre.

Cathythoughts A book that made a lasting impact on me ... I reread it last year .... 6mo
gradcat @Cathythoughts It scared me so much when I first read it (I think I was twelve? Maybe thirteen?), that I didn‘t sleep well for months! So scary...and the movie affected me the same way! 6mo

Cathythoughts I didn‘t know there was a movie. I‘m not sure I could watch .... 6mo
Samplergal This was a favorite as a teenager. I think I‘ve read it at least 6 times in my lifetime. Capote changed a whole genre with this book. So wonderful. 6mo
KarenUK Such a perfect choice 👍💕 6mo
gradcat @Samplergal You hit the nail on the head! I can‘t believe you‘ve read it six times, though—I think you might a true crime nut like I am!?! 😂 6mo
gradcat @KarenUK Thank you! 🙏 ☺️ ♥️ 6mo
Samplergal @gradcat I‘m also 63.... so I have had lots of years to read it. I read it first the yr it was published. At eleven. My parents were very liberal with reading materials. 😂Pretty soon I‘ll be demented and not remember I have read it!! 😂😂😂 6mo
gradcat @Samplergal My parents were like that, too...I remember being very young when I read it. By the way, I‘ll be 61 in December, so I‘m with you...but I hope & pray we‘ll NOT soon be demented!! 😂 6mo

This true-crime story of Israel Keyes, described as “a force of pure evil” has been receiving a lot of buzz lately. Investigative journalist Callahan provides a chilling narrative in this book. I‘m curious to read it.
