NB Magazine book review of The Best New True Crime Stories: Small Towns

"A well curated and considered collection comprising some well written essays/stories that explore the origins of each crime; the investigation, subsequent trial – when the culprit was caught, and the traumatic effect on the community – the aftermath.... These stories get to the human cost behind the terrible events that suddenly vault a small town into the public gaze." -  Paul Burke, NB Magazine

Library Journal review of The Best New True Crime Stories: Small Towns

The Best New True Crime Stories: Small Towns in Library Journal

 

"International writers focus on the impact of crime on close-knit communities. Many stories illustrate the intergenerational effects and lasting trauma of chronic poverty and sexual abuse. Stories such as Szereto’s “I Kill for God,” about Isaac Zamora, who murdered six people in 2008 in Skagit County, WA, emphasize the failure of mental health-care systems to diagnose and treat adequately those with psychological disorders. Exploring a tragic case in Posorja, Ecuador, Tom Larsen laments that environments marked by endemic corruption often give rise to vigilante justice. Anthony Ferguson’s profile of Snowtown, Australia, where in 1999 four killers murdered 12 victims, examines the phenomenon of “dark tourism,” in which small towns where murders have occurred develop a macabre reputation that makes community healing difficult."
