You can’t imagine how badly I wish that I could have a guitar intro for this blog. My Favourite Murder is a popular True Crime podcast that discusses a new murder every week. The two hosts, Karen and Georgia, play off each other in a way that makes it seem like you’re sitting with two friends. So here is My Favourite Murder-er, a fictional take on the podcast I love. And this week? I’m here to make a case for Macbeth.
Into the Water

After leaping into the future and trying to puzzle which way humanity will be going, the DAC book club needed a moment to breathe. We could read something relaxing, like a breezy romance, but instead we chose Into the Water, a novel about murder. This is why I love my book club people. You’ve really touched my heart.

Everyone knows about O.J. Simpson and his acquittal of guilt in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman. In the criminal trial, Simpson was found “not guilty” by a jury of his peers, a controversial decision to this day. In a civil trial, however, he was found liable for the damages to the Goldman family and lost a fortune to them.
It was in order to make money (presumably because he was low on funds due to that lost fortune), O.J. Simpson agreed to make this book. He worked with a ghost writer and basically hypothesized how he would have committed the murders IF he had been the one to commit them.
