The new Netflix crime documentary series Making a Murderer is about Steven Avery, a man who was wrongfully imprisoned for eighteen years for a crime he didn’t commit, freed, and then arrested for murder two years after his release – while he was in the middle of suing the police department that arrested him the first time. The question the series poses: Did he kill Teresa Halbach, or was he framed by the police?

The series is crazy-pants, and is lighting up the internet with theories and outrage. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably binge-watched it. So now you’re horrified. You’re astounded. You’re enraged. Now what?

Whether you believe Steven Avery is guilty or innocent of murder, here are 10 fascinating books about crime, conspiracy, and the miscarriage of justice to feed your frustrations. And feel free to leave your related recommendations in the comments!

There’s something about being a bookselling book nerd that makes you want to bring your work home with you. Which is why, about a week after doing our store’s inventory, I decided I wanted to inventory all my books.

Yup, I scanned every single one and uploaded it to my LibraryThing. You may ask yourself: are there benefits to such a task? Or was I engaging in a mix of self congratulation (look at all my books!) and obsessive behavior? I won’t deny that I can be both obsessive and proud when it comes to my book collection, but there are benefits to knowing exactly what books you have and where you have them.
