I am reading a true crime novel and wonder just how to get started doing that. To be successful you would have to interview everyone identified with the case in any capacity as well as the family of the victim and family of the perpetrator. You would need to talk to the defense and to the prosecutor's office. You need to interview the accused.
How do you get people to cooperate? I don't suppose most would fully trust the writer to portray them as they see themselves. Most would not want to be publicly scrutinized.
I do try new things to stretch my abilities and so I may try this sometime, but not today.
