Maybe it begins with a body in the woods, half-buried under bracken. Or with a glimmering shot of a city skyline. Or with a furtive deal, carried out at dusk, before an unknown character heads toward an untimely end.

The category of true crime, once limited to the occasional documentary collecting dust on a video store shelf, is now a billion-dollar industry.
