Let’s face it. While this week brings the Edgar Awards and Malice Domestic with the Agatha Awards, the biggest news in the crime world yesterday was the arrest of the suspect believed to be the “East Area Rapist” or the “Golden State Killer” in California. The attorneys are crediting DNA. Many of the true crime aficionados are crediting Michelle McNamara and her unrelenting investigation. The late journalist is the author of the bestseller, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. There are copies available in the Web Store. http://bit.ly/2r1lD6u
There are several other titles available for order at the same link. And, you can also find a few other titles by searching East Area Rapist. http://bit.ly/2HRNzEm
We’ll have news of award winners coming up this weekend when the awards are presented. In the meantime, DNA, McNamara’s book, and the arrest of a suspect for crimes committed thirty to forty years ago, are the hot topic.
