I just finished reading Terri Jentz's Strange Piece of Paradise. It's part memoir, part social commentary. In 1977, Jentz and a university friend went on a biking trip. While camping one night, a man ran over their tent in a truck, and then proceeded to attack them with an axe. He was never arrested for the crime. Fifteen years later, Jentz returns to the area where she was attacked, determined to find out what happened and who did. This book chronicles that journey.

This is a good book, but it's not true crime in the sense of those sensationalised paperbacks which serve up salacious details. It is more about the "before and after", and a commentary about violence in US society, than about the gory details of the crime itself. A good read!
