Cold Case Files: Justice Found Years Later

Cold Case Files is a series built around the re-examination of long-unsolved crimes and the journeys of law enforcement personnel who reopened them. If you love true crime then you will love this show. I finished it in a week on one of my Netflix binges. It embodies the way investigations unravel with witnesses, new information, and science helping lead detectives in new directions. Directions that lead to the conviction of the perpetrators of those crimes. Crimes that had previously been unsolved for many years. The conviction of these criminals give the family the closure they seek and the community of the victims find peace at long last. 

Serial Podcast: Truth, Crime, and Justice in America

I like many Americans consume true crime like it is my morning bowl of cereal. I can’t get enough of it some days. I think it is cause I have an addiction to detective shows since I was little. But there is another reason why I am talking about true crime today. As someone that studies politics and policy in the classroom, I can’t help but under if the we as a nation of Americans are doing enough to have justice in America. Upon a recommendation by my Pinterest feed  I started listening to the Serial Podcast. 

Queen of the Flowers: Book vs. Show

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries are one of my favorite television shows to watch. I have probably rewatched the show more times than I care to admit. I love all the characters and stories so much. I can recite the episodes from memory. However, I am not the only fan out there in the world. I have watched the fan base grow and grow as this show has reached the global audiences around the world thanks to streaming services like Netflix. However, many fans do not know that this beloved series started as a book series by Kerry Greenwood. 

I never thought I would have the opportunity to read one of the books in this series until I found Queen of the Flowers in my local library.  Miss Fisher must unwrap the mysterious disappearance of one of her flower maidens that she was in charge of while her daughter Ruth goes missing as well. This book is full of mystery and intrigue. The pages are filled with twist and turns. The unexpected and expected. Whatever is to come of the Honorable Miss Fisher and her household of misfits? Well, the only way to find out would be to read this tale wouldn’t it? 

Person of Interest: Science-Fiction meets Crime Drama

I love a good TV show that braces itself across several styles of story telling. I love action. I love sci-fi. I love romance. So if I can get a little piece of all my favorites in a show then I am more than excited to watch the program. So today, I present to you…

Death in Paradise: CSI and Island Life

I grew up watching every detective show on TV, and loved them. I have rewatched so many episodes of NCIS and CSI: Las Vegas that I can practically recite some of lines by memory. Despite my adoration for a good cop show, I find that the same clichés are often repeated with new faces and new locations. It was hard to find excitement in another detective show, but I think I have found the cure to my boredom. Welcome to the stage, Death in Paradise.
