Kathryn Casey and Matt Birkberk.  I think I'm having Ann Rule burnout.

I'm an Ann Rule fan too, even though it seems her earlier stuff was better written. She was the one that got me into true crime.  As a person, i really respect her as well, from what i've read about her on her website,etc.. She seems genuinely concerned and affected by the people she writes about.
