Books & Authors and non-fiction read-a-likes

I tend to read a lot of non-fiction, so I am always interested in resources that provide read-a-like suggestions for non-fiction titles, like Gale’s Books & Authors.  I decided to look for read-a-likes based on true crime title that I enjoyed, Midnight in Peking by Paul French.

Books & Authors provides information including a synopsis of the plot, information about the author, book reviews, and read-a-like suggestions.  In this case, it suggests Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann as a read-a-like.  I have not yet read this recommended title, but it is a good bet that Books & Authors is a useful tool for generating read-a-likes for non-fiction readers.
