    great crime writer passes

    five time best selling novelist Dominick Dunne passed on august 26 of bladder cancer at his home in Manhattan. Mr.Dunne was my favorite true crime writer and a real stand up guy.he wrote mainly about murder and revenge and horrible things that went on in the wealthiest family's and circles.his tag line was ( from bling bling to sing sing)murderous tales of the rich and famous.i watch true crime shows and read true crime books a lot.in my opinion Dominick was the very best crime writer there ever was.he just finished his last navel shortly before he died, so we still have that to look forward to.MrDunne met everyone he wrote about and moved in the same select circles they did.i will really miss him.

    I just found out like 30 minutes ago.
    Really liked watching his crime case show.
    He seemed like a nice smart fellow

    He was also the father of Doiminique Dunne, the actress who was murdered by a stalker. He was also instrumental in the Skakel case. He opened many eyes to how the powerful don't always get away with things. He will be missed.

    Thank you for your posting. I've enjoyed his stories and was fortunate enough to have first hand knowledge of one of his continuing stories before his death. I wonder who will step into the breach...who has his breadth of contacts and insights...
