Various

One of the most successful periodicals in magazine history was True Detective Mysteries. An offshoot of publisher Bernarr Macfadden's True Story magazine, True Detective specialized in semi-fictionalizing real-life crime cases taken from police blotters and making them riveting reading, illustrated by posed photographs, newspaper morgue pix and police mug shots. The concept was a natural. Circulation soared into the millions. Before long, imitators followed in droves, leading to a new breed of entertainment that survives this day under the catchall phrase of true crimes magazines. Chapters: #1 Innocent Woman Saved #2 John Nungasser Shot Twelve Times #3 Pendleton, Oregon #4 State Trooper Has Been Shot #5 Who Killed Bonnie Collins? #6 Murder in the Horror House #7 Shipboard Beauty #8 The Case of the Reprocessed Bride
