I used to read her books a lot. She used to be a co-worker of Ted Bundy.

I think I've read most or almost all of her books - she is/was definitely one of my very favorite authors. Factual and empathetic - and the photos I've seen of her in recent years showed an obvious decline - but her writing was still top notch. I will miss her insight and perception and just the way she focused on the victim of the crimes she wrote about. I truly feel like I lost a personal friend in her passing - it is sad to see her go, but so glad she was a part of the "good guy" team. She will definitely be missed.

Very sad, she was one of my favorite authors. Purchased many of her fine books.

Here's hoping there are more of her books in a trunk somewhere or in galleys, about to be released.

She will be sadly missed! I don't understand why more of her books weren't made into movies!

I started reading her book 'Small Sacrifices' and couldn't get into. Toooo depressing about a women killing her 3 little children. Now I have started reading the 'I-5 Killer'.
