Profiling the nation’s most intriguing criminals . . . interviewing killers, survivors, witnesses, and lawyers . . . recreating faces on skulls to help identify victims and solve cases . . . prosecuting and locking up serial and sexual killers . . . witnessing executions on Texas Death Row . . . covering the nation’s top crime stories . . . and uncovering truth in the face of jail time and death threats.
These are the daily tasks of the ten women who make up Women in Crime Ink (WCI). Beginning March 10, they will share their day-to-day adventures and behind-the-scenes stories that are always stranger than fiction. WCI will also feature interviews as well as book and film reviews. Expect guest contributor blogs from those impacted by crime and a “Mystery Man” column, written by men in the crime biz. Additionally, WCI will host live chats with selected crime authors promoting their books.
Women in Crime Ink has assembled an impressive lineup of award-winning true-crime authors, print and broadcast journalists, crime novelists, producers for CNN and CBS News, television personalities, and criminal justice professionals—including a forensic artist, a criminal profiler, a prosecutor, and a private investigator.
