Ann Rule would be my recommendation.

If you like crime drama from the legal side, Lisa Scottoline gets my vote.

I just read a really good one-- Strange Piece of Paradise. Nothing much like Patricia Cornwall, somewhat similar to Ann Rule. What was fascinating to me is the "unique" viewpoint of a "true crime" victim trying to solve the "mystery" of who tried to murder her 20 years earlier.

I don't read them but as a bookseller I would recommend Karin Slaughter or Kathy Reichs.

I think so. At least I think that's the name. I have a weird association with that book.

No, I don't think that's an Ann Rule. Isn't that the one where the woman kills her children in the end? Sick.

Bitter Havest *is* an Ann Rule book.

She is one of my favorite authors.

Yup, it's Ann Rule. Bitter Harvest. Doctor lights her house on fire to get back at cheating husband (also a doctor). Ends up killing two of her three children instead. Was quite the sensation around these parts for a long time.

I LOVE true crime! Fascinating stuff. To me the bible of true crime is Helter Skelter.

Here's a great website that combines my love of true crime and celebrity gossip. In fact I've been "cheating" on SI with this site. *sigh* (No offense intended. Don't mean to trigger.)

I enjoyed Zodiac by Robert Graysmith.

And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Love true crime; Ann Rule is my favorite. Am reading 501 Most Notorious Crimes by Paul Donnelley. One to two pages of true crimes/criminals. Freaky people out there!

Bitter Harvest was a good book.
I worked with the husband and knew the kids.
Very, very sad story on so many levels.

I recommend Jack Olsen. He's written a few books that are a bit off the beaten path. "Son" is probably the most frightening (and easy-to-read - while Olsen is a fascinating author, he does tend to ramble off in odd directions on occasion).

If you can find it, also try "A Family Business" by Ken Englade (it's out of print, but still available on Amazon). Warning: the subject matter is a little, uh, gruesome.
