Betty Lou Beets
I’ve read a ton of true crime books and almost all of them suffer from the same problem- filler. It always seems true crime authors pad their work with uninteresting asides. Buried Memories does not have this problem. Irene Pence has constructed such a tight narrative that nothing is irrelevant, it all ties back into the story of the crime.
Pence does not try to portray Betty Lou Beets as a monster, nor does she try to compel sympathy for her. Instead, she presents the facts of the case and Betty Lou’s life and allows her audience to make up their own minds.
This might be the best true crime book I’ve ever read (or more accurately, listened to). I found myself hanging on every word and fully involved in the unfolding story. If you’re a true crime fan, I highly recommend you give this a listen.
