Finished 2 true crime novels: Blood and Money by Thomas Thompson and Till Death Us Do Part by Vincent Bugliosi.
Both are set in the late 60s and early 70s. Blood and Money in Houston and Till Death Us Do Part in LA. Both are pretty much about alleged murderers who have a good deal of circumstantial evidence to cause suspicion of their responsibility of the murder. And both alleged murderers are two of the oddest characters I've ever read about. I guess they're almost so odd they have to be real.
The rest of the characters in Blood and Money are just larger than life Texas characters that would satirize Texans were they fictional. It's just a conspiracy of murders one after another after an oil baron's only daughter marries a doctor who loves spending money (but doesn't have any).
In the other novel, it's almost like reading about a real life Double Indemnity and Strangers on a Train and the insurance-related murders appear to be stimulated by lust, greed, and a calculated psychopath. Just really bizarre.
I found both novels to be interesting, although both seemed to become laborious to read by the final few chapters. They seem to tie up the story, but I would say no fiction writer would ever drag out the end like the way these 2 novels finished.
