I am now five months into reading true crime regularly. The books I read are most often picked by a ,wonderful librarian, whom I have a lot in common with. (And who is illustrating Not What I said, a humorous children's book my son and I wrote about raising feral children.) She tries to give us books with some meat to them, and a variety of murder styles and times. But one thing they often have in common is white men killing women - often prostitutes. This is not her bias, but the bias of police and true crime writers. The most common caught killers are white men. The most often portrayed serial killers are white men. But they are not the only people who kill.
