And the Winners Are…

Thanks to everyone who cast a vote in the Best True Crime Books of 2012 survey. It’s great seeing so many speak out about their favorite books and authors!

Before we get to the winners, I wanted to point out married women between the ages of 40 and 49, living in the Southwestern United States are the largest true crime audience. For quite a few days, the ladies maintained a healthy lead on the men but in the final days, the guys started catching up; leaving the ladies to win by only a hair of a percentage.

So, what I deduced from this is that true crime reading men are procrastinators.

Just kidding, guys! :)
