"I really try to picture the scene when I read True Crime. Trying to figure out what really happened is like therapy to me."

Setting

Lawrencetown, Washington State

Lawrenceton is a charming town with a classic vibe. Aurora works as a server at a local diner and studies Library Science at Lawrenceton University, an aged college building. Victorian-style houses and a lush town square add to its quaint charm. Arthur works at the police department in the center of town.
