'True crime' literature abundant

Regarding the editorial Son of Sam' Ruling," Dec. 16: The author's observations that overturning the Son of Sam law "could open the floodgates to a deluge of 'true crime' trash" seems disingenuous considering that we're already barraged with such works, albeit from third-person perspectives.

The only difference between the accounts published now and what the overturning of the law may give rise to in the future is that the latter will probably be more accurate. John Trappe Florence, Ariz.
