Fans of true crime can’t get enough with documentaries and books that help them get a better understanding of the crimes that have happened. In a new book The Leopold and Loeb Files, not only can you read about the crime but also the real transcripts, evidence and more. You can relive the crime, see if you figure out if they were guilty or not. It allows you to learn more about all of the players and a moment in history you weren’t even around for yet.

The Leopold and Loeb files reviewIn 1924, University of Chicago students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb were young, rich, and looking for a thrill. The crime that came next—the brutal, cold-blood murder of 14-year-old Bobby Franks—would come to captivate the country and unfold into what many dubbed the crime of the century. As the decades passed, the mythology surrounding the unlikely killers continued to capture the interest of new generations, spawning numerous books, fictionalizations, and dramatizations.

In The Leopold and Loeb Files, author Nina Barrett returns to the primary sources—confessions, interrogation transcripts, psychological reports, and more—the kind of rare, pre-computer court documents that were usually destroyed as a matter of course. Until now, these documents have not been part of the murder’s central narrative. This first-of-its-kind approach allows readers to view the case through a keyhole and look past all of the stories that have been spun in the last 90 years to focus on the heart of the crime.

The book will take true crime lovers on an adventure and captivate them while they’re reading them.
