The Murders at the Lake

The magazine Texas Monthly has a knack for publishing extremely well-written crime reporting. In December 2012, I gushed about “The Innocent Man” by Pamela Colloff, a terrifying piece about how bad police work and prosecutors determined to win at any cost can be just as destructive as the most deranged criminal.

Today, thanks to a Facebook post by author Dennis Tafoya, I read “The Murders at the Lake” by Michael Hall. It looks at the 1982 murders of three Waco, Texas, teenagers from five different perspectives: cop, detective, lawyer, journalist and inmate. Highly recommended.
