David Fincher’s Netflix series Mindhunter pushed all the right buttons. It’s a classy, psychology-driven throwback drama series with great acting and no small amount of grizzly murder. What could be an exploitative parade of serial killer name drops never feels cheap and gives a great look into the early days of psychological profiling. While we wait for Season Two, here are some books that should sate the true crime or left-field murder mystery fans in all of us.

8. The Snowman

The book that launched a thousand memes thanks to the spectacular failure of its movie adaptation and, perhaps more significantly, it’s expensive ad campaign. Still, there’s a reason this book was adapted in the first place: The Snowman is not your average Scandinavian thriller, nor is The Snowman your average killer. That’s all I’ll say. [Amazon, $8.98]

7. In Cold Blood

Truman Capote’s disturbingly empathetic look at real-life murderers blurs the line between an author and a participant. It’s chilling, violent, and, as you’d expect with Capote, just beautifully written. [Amazon, $12.80]

6. Mindhunter (the book)

The book that started it all (the TV series, that is.) [Amazon, $7.99]

5. Whoever Fights Monsters: My Twenty Years Tracking Serial Killers for the FBI

Before Mindhunter there was Robert K. Ressler, the inspiration for one of the fictional agents actually presented in the show. Here, he gives first-hand insight into the skills you gain from twenty-years of criminal profiling. And, of course, the toll it takes. [Amazon, $8.99]

4. The Secret Place

Quite simply one of the best murder mystery books of our time. Tana French has made a name for herself combining intriguing, unpredictable mystery tropes with straight-up beautiful writing, and other genre influences ranging from comedy to outright horror. The Secret Place is the finest entry in her near-flawless Dublin Murder Squad series, which, don’t worry, can be enjoyed separately. You’ll want to pick them all up after reading this one, anyway. [Amazon, $8.99]

3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

That is, if you haven’t read this cold, twisted, outrageously popular mystery novel already. [Amazon $9.99]

2. Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders

With the 50-year anniversary of the Manson Family murders approaching, there’s never been a better time to brush up on the story of one of the most disturbing, high-profile serial killers of all time. [Amazon, $11.52]

1. Libra

A fascinating, fictional retelling of Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination of President John F. Kennedy. While (almost certainly) a completely fabricated narrative, author Don DeLillo delivers a fascinating deep-dive into the mind of the kind of man who would attempt, let alone pull off, one of the most horrible, brazen crimes in American history. [Amazon, $8.99]

The most fun thing about betting on sports — besides winning in the final seconds — is placing a prop bet. There’s nothing a weird and wild wager to take the edge off a more serious, analytical prediction. Regular gambling enthusiasts will often describe prop bets as having “juiced” odds, in that they are long — too long, some say — to be worth it. Sure, proposition bets have longer odds, but the payouts are higher, making them enticing to both bettors and bookies.

Having a smart home isn’t all getting the news from your washer-dryer or yelling at your fridge to make a dentist appointment; there are smaller and, dare I say it, more significant ways technology can help you life your best life. And they don’t all cost a bunch of money, either. Even a modest smart home is well within the means of most people now, and it’d be silly not to make your life easier, and your home a better place to be, with just a few small, easy upgrades.

A wave of Apple Watch Series 4 reviews were published this week, ahead of it going on sale on Friday, and largely, the reviews have been positive! But there’s a “remarkable contrast” among different reviewers, as a few have have noticed. There are effusive endorsements, and then there are reviews so exhaustive they make you wonder if the editor was on vacation. Other reviewers disagree about the impact the watch will have. The resulting noise makes it tough to determine if you should spend $400-$800 on one.

Didn’t you hear? The age of cord cutting is over and TV is back in style, baby. No, that doesn’t mean you’re suddenly going to become your dad and obsessively DVR every single episode of Burn Notice that you can get your hands on. It just means that, from the casual gamer to the movie nerd, using your tiny laptop screen for everything doesn’t really cut it anymore.
