Bluegrass: A True Story of Murder in Kentucky
by William Van Meter
I've been avoiding finding more books to read because my TBR stacks (that's right, plural) are making me nervous. So, I can't remember exactly how this book snuck up on me and came into my awareness. All I know is before I knew it I was at Powells reading about it and watching its video promo.
The last true crime type book I read was this past summer. It was a new book, While They Slept: An Inquiry Into the Murder of a Family by Kathryn Harrison. I had read other books by Harrison and found her to be a very good writer. I was curious about how she would approach writing in the true crime genre. It was a very interesting book and a quick read. Don't know when I'll get to "Bluegrass" but it's on my radar now.
