Join us as we delve into real life mysteries with true crime! We will read some classics of the genre, as well as recent stories that use modern forensic techniques like DNA to catch actual killers. True crime gives us insight into the psychology of killers and investigators, as well as letting us examine good versus evil in our own world.
