Under the Banner of Heaven on Hulu: This miniseries is a murder mystery set in a Mormon community based on Jon Krakauer’s same titled true crime book. It’s a whodunnit and whydunnit murder mystery about the real life murder of Brenda Wright Lafferty and her infant daughter. The series added the fictional investigators Jeb Pyre and Bill Taba as a duo, Prye being Mormon and Taba not. The cast includes Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Denise Gough. And you can watch the trailer here.

book cover for the weight of blood

Upcoming: The Weight of Blood by Tiffany D. Jackson (Sept 6, 2022) If standing ovations were a thing given to books consider me standing and clapping right now. This is a horror novel with massive appeal for mystery/thriller readers as we follow a true crime podcast trying to finally figure out what happened to an almost entirely murdered town after its first integrated prom. If you’re thinking that means its setting is historical, it is not. Segregated proms exists in the 21st century: schools get away with it because the proms aren’t hosted by the school but rather parents and/or students off campus. We follow the podcast, interviews from those who survived, and articles after the fact while also going back to 2014 to watch all the events that led up to the massacre and survivors to say “Maddy did it.” If you’re getting major Carrie vibes from the cover and summary I’d say this is a retelling that surpasses the original hands down.
