My friend, Daniel, recommended Bill James’ Popular Crime. I’ve been riveted since I started page one! His thorough, if not a bit unconventional approach, sucked me in and kept me interested. Each chapter could stand alone, which makes it much easier to read (and to put down for awhile, if you’re busy at work, which I often am).
Mr. James doesn’t become overly gratuitous; however, I’d advise not reading the chapter on the Cleveland Torso Murderer at night whilst trying to fall asleep!
1 oz Wild Turkey 101 (I made it a double 😮 )
Fresh Limes (I used Lime Juice)
Ginger Beer (I used Ginger Ale) to top off
