The title story in this collection was not as gripping as some of Rule's other choices. All along, we know who the killer is, and we learn much more about his wife than we ever do about his victim. Why? To prove he terrorized his wife? I think we got the point the first time we learned he was taping her phone conversations. Then it was repeated at least twice more. I hope volume three of Rule's short cases proves more exciting than volume two. Ann Rule's Crime Files, #2.

This book includes 6 short stories of classic Ann Rule writing! If you're looking for a quick reader, this is a good one. The first story, You Belong To Me takes up more than half of the book and is a very interesting story about a Florida State Trooper.

From the Publisher
Following the success of four top-ten New York Times bestsellers, former Seattle policewoman Ann Rule offers readers Volume Two of her Crime Files. In the trademark style that makes her books such extraordinary pageturners, Rule now focuses on one of Florida's most shocking criminal cases: that of the state trooper who hid bizarre and fatal fantasies behind his badge. 8-page photo insert.
Like A Rose for Her Grave, this collection consists of one book-length treatment and five shorter case histories from her true-crime files. Meticulous in her coverage, Rule demonstrates her signature, compassionate re-creation, when describing the numerous lives affected when Florida highway patrolman Tim Harris obsessively stalked his wife and then raped and murdered a female driver near I-95. Operating on many levels, it can be read as the psychological profile of a man for whom a wife was simply another possession or as a wonderfully detailed police procedural, complete with frustrating false leads and a brilliantly inspired interrogation scene. In each of the subsequent cases, Rule shifts the focus slightly, concentrating on an entangled forensics puzzle in one, on a two-year missing-person search complicated by a psychic goose chase in another. Rule's considerable reporting skills and hindsight analysis make her a gifted cautionary guide through the hazards of human folly. Yet, as she admits in the chilling ``Black Christmas,'' when a picture-perfect family can be brutally murdered due to an absurd misunderstanding, all the little red flags in the world may mean nothing.
