Very humanizing but also very dark and a little haunting

Killings is a great pick for anyone who is a fan of Cormac McCarthy, Capote, or the New Yorker’s stellar writing standards. The book is a collection of true crime stories that appeared in the New Yorker between 1969 and 2010. The writing is sharp, often focussing less on the gory details and more on the context of the crime and the lives of the people involved. Very humanizing but also very dark and a little haunting (Submitted by Shawn).
