As seen on the Oxygen mini-series The Disappearance of Maura Murray
When an eleven year old James Renner fell in love with Amy Mihaljevic, the missing girl seen on posters all over his neighborhood, it was the beginning of a lifelong obsession with true crime. That obsession leads James to a successful career as an investigative journalist. It also gave him PTSD. In 2011, James began researching the strange disappearance of Maura Murray, a UMass student who went missing after wrecking her car in rural New Hampshire in 2004. Over the course of his investigation, he uncovers numerous important and shocking new clues about what may have happened to Maura, but also finds himself in increasingly dangerous situations with little regard for his own well-being. As his quest to find Maura deepens, the case starts taking a toll on his personal life, which begins to spiral out of control. The result is an absorbing dual investigation of the complicated story of the All-American girl who went missing and James's own equally complicated true crime addiction.
James Renner's True Crime Addict is the story of his spellbinding investigation of the missing person's case of Maura Murray, which has taken on a life of its own for armchair sleuths across the web. In the spirit of David Fincher's Zodiac, it is a fascinating look at a case that has eluded authorities and one man's obsessive quest for the answers.

James Renner , this book is so dope !
I came across this case through Kendal Rae's YouTube video, then I got into the Missing Maura Murray podcast. Now I just finished your audiobook! It's just amazing! Thank you for everything you put into this book .
True Crime Addict
I don't recommend this book. Honestly it's more of a Bio of the author than about Maura Murray. I would catch myself asking what does this have to do with the Maura Murray mystery. Plus I didn't find the author that great of a investigator.
