Pick up James Ellroy's unsettling memoir of his mother's unsolved murder, My Dark Places. I guarantee you it's a book you won't soon forget.

 

Has anybody else read this?

Although they're fiction, you might also like Max Allan Collins' Nathan Heller books, in each of which Heller attempts to solve a great unsolved mystery from the past, such as Amelia Earhart's disappearance or the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby.  They're always scrupulously researched and Collins' solutions are extremely smart and interesting.

MY DARK PLACES is in fact incredible.  Ellroy is something of a mad genius--when you look up from his world, your own looks strange.

 

You might also try some of Gregg Olsen's work; he's a great writer, and dead in your area of interest.
