Gr 6 Up—Fans of crime stories will find these eight volumes informative. Each explores the respective crimes in detail and includes time lines, histories of the criminals, and theories for the unresolved cases. The books share important information: the chronology of John F. Kennedy's assassination, the facts of the Borden murders, witness accounts of the Zodiac Killer's crimes, paintings stolen in the Gardner Museum heist, and the backgrounds of the suspected killers of Tupac and Biggie. While the Son of Sam and Manson murders have been resolved, the other cases still pose questions. Facts are presented objectively. Unfortunately, the narratives tend to be a little tedious, with the exception of The Zodiac Killer; its description of the murders and abductions is quite chilling. VERDICT True crime stories continue to fascinate; those looking for information on these famous cases will find these books helpful. Purchases should be based on demand.
