Law&Crime Network launches True Crime Book Club
February 13, 2023
Live trial and true crime network Law&Crime has announced the launch of its new Book Club, which will feature a monthly book recommendation – or “Spotlight” – carefully selected from a growing pool of new releases in the non-fiction, true crime genre. The Book Club will allow millions of true crime fanatics to expand on their millions of comments from Law&Crime’s livestreams, news articles and original series to a new platform of thoughtfully curated books.
Law&Crime’s Book Club is set to launch today (February 13th), with the release of its first Spotlight pick, Deliberate Cruelty: Truman Capote, the Millionaire’s Wife and the Murder of the Century by Roseanne Montillo. The book chronicles the high-profile murder of banking heir Billy Woodward by his wife, Ann, and unpacks Montillo’s personal fascination with the case and unlucky attempt at fictionalizing it.
“This seemed like a no-brainer for us. Law&Crime is already the go-to place for millions of true crime fans and now they can count on us to recommend the best books as well,” said Law&Crime CEO Dan Abrams. “Each month, we will sort through the hundreds of selections in this space and curate the most compelling list.”
Alongside the Monthly Book Spotlight, the Club will also be the go-to site for all true crime-related publishing news, author interviews, weekly reviews and other discussion-based content for readers who can’t get enough of their favorite cases.
Law&Crime already has its own books division in partnership with Simon&Schuster and Abrams himself has co-authored a number of New York Times bestsellers with colleague David Fisher, including Lincoln’s Last Trial, John Adams Under Fire and Theodore Roosevelt for the Defense. His most recent release, Alabama v. King, was written in collaboration with Martin Luther King’s attorney Fred Gray.
