True Crime

Every crime tells a story … 

In these pages, a magazine intern, kidnapped and brutalized by her ex-boyfriend, struggles to live free from fear; an identity thief encounters a prison guard who knows her better than she knows herself; a young adventurer supports her travels by smuggling pre-Columbian artifacts; a triple homicide devastates a high school swim team; a detective searches for the truth in a he-said-she-said situation. Plus, award-winning journalists investigate the attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords and the unsolved lynching of Claude Neal. 

And in an exclusive, in-depth interview, Erik Larson, author of The Devil in the White City and master of the true-crime genre, shares the secrets of making history come to life.
