Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


Based off the popular podcast, this exploration of the gripping facets of true crime is best served with a glass of your favorite red, a sense of humor, and your besties. The Gals' long-running friendship, cultivated by a fascination with the deranged and a healthy dose of "fuck-the-patriarchy" energy, is just what we all need to get through the latest awful news alert.

Kenyon Laing, Lucy Fitzgerald, and Amanda Jacobson are childhood friends who also happen to host the wildly popular Wine & Crime podcast. They dish out their bawdy humor in this collection of chilling true crime essays.
The gals each take turns exploring some of their favorite twisted true crime cases and killers: from “DIY/Arts & Crafts Murders” and favorite “F*cked-up Forensics" to an ode for certain “Gross Groupies.” This is the book for true crime fans who want to know about the "why" of true crime tales — why killers are mostly men, why we have an obsession with these stories, and why they’re worth telling.
Crack open this book, indulge in your favorite bottle of vino, and get ready for a killer good time.

About the Author

In her past life, Kenyon was a gender-based violence researcher and consultant. Which is basically a more academic way of saying she is one helluva NASTY WOMAN. Almost kicked out of a book club once for being slightly too obsessed with Ann Rule and Ted Bundy, Kenyon’s love of true crime cannot be tamed.

Lucy was going to get a degree in Mortuary Science before she realized she was not good at math, so she majored in English instead and has worked as an editor at a number of food magazines. Her fascination with all things morbid probably scared off a few potential friends over the years, but she DGAF and prefers to be alone with her cats anyway.

Amanda is a veteran of the hospitality industry, and as such has contemplated committing murder many, many times. Wine & Crime is an opportunity to combine those skills with several of her passions, including, but not limited to: booze, true crime, plotting the demise of obnoxious people, and, of course, laying on a too-thick Minnesota accent.
