Book Review: Killing for Company: The Case of Dennis Nilson by Brian Masters

I'm an enthusiastic listener of true crime podcasts, having been caught up in the My Favorite Murder craze back when it started, but have read very few true crime books. While I've moved on to better and more responsible podcasts, my interest in true crime remains.

A cosy read that pairs perfectly with a rainy day, a cup of tea, and a cat in your lap, The House in the Cerulean Sea is sure to warm you heart.
