Eight top true crime books

Thomas Harding's newest book is Blood on the Page.

One of his eight favorite true crime books, as shared at the Waterstones blog:
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson (2003)

Marketed as both fiction and non-fiction, but surely more ‘true’ than In Cold Blood, Larson tells the story of an architect at the Chicago World’s Fair and a serial killer on the rampage.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Devil in the White City is among Graham Moore's six favorite books about technology, Jeff Somers's eight top true crime books, Dell Villa's top five literary escapes to American cities, and Randy Dotinga's five favorite historical true-crime books from the last decade.
