Sword and Scale is a must-listen podcast for fans of true crime everywhere. Covering some of the most heartbreaking and tragic murder cases in modern history, the show’s host Mike Boudet clearly knows a thing or two about great true crime stories. As part of our True Crime Podcaster cast of Guest Editors this month, Mike let us in on the true crime books he’s currently loving.
Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical Examiner by Dr. Judy Melinek
This is another amazing book that sits just outside of the “True-Crime” genre but also has strong ties to it and shares the same morbid fascination. It’s about a forensic pathologist’s experiences, and it describes every single gruesome detail.
