Secrets and lies #7 - My secret obsession.

It’s embarrassing, but I’m hooked on true crime. Dateline, documentaries, dozens of podcasts. (Did Adnan do it? I don’t think he did). I blame my grandmother, who kept stacks of cheesy, murdery detective magazines that I poured through whenever we would visit. My daughter tweeted she only listens to podcasts about murder. It may be genetic.


  1. Do you read Ann Rule? She's highly regarded in true crime literature. The Stranger Beside Me is about working alongside the charming and trustworthy Ted Bundy.

  2. I've read it - love Anne Rule. Even when the description of someone calling himself Ted, driving a tan volkswagen was made public, she didn't think it was him. She let the police know about the guy she worked with, but then said it couldn't be him.

  3. Interesting. I avoid true crime stories.

  4. I didn't know this was a thing. Or perhaps I did, as the entire population of NZ has an opinion on whether David Bain did it or not.
