Richard Price who is one of the finest true crime writers alive. Some of his more notable titles include like 'Clockers', 'Lush life', 'Freedom Land'. All exceptional.
Dennis Lehane who is responsible for 'Mystic River' and 'Gone Baby Baby Gone' which should speak for itself.
William Zorzi, Rafael Alvarez, Ed Burns, George Pelecanos, the list goes on and on.
I'm familiar with all of those names and I've read and seen most of David Simon's past work. Doesn't change the fact that the Sopranos was a better show.
