In Tumbledown Shack, two lovely hitchhikers travel down the road to hell when they accept a ride from a demented killer. Could an upwardly mobile businessman's frightening Fatal Obsession lead him to kill his family-and stab himself to death? And for one beautiful young wife, The Killer Never Forgot...Or Forgave was her "adoring" husband!
From the brutal rapist who used a woman's child to get what he wanted to the rebellious teens who learned a terrible lesson, this collection of bone-chilling cases involving heartless monsters who wreaked bloody havoc is Ann Rule at her best.

Good thing about a book of true crime short stories: I could finish each one and stop, rather than being caught up in the middle of a long true crime book and staying up all night reading. Bad thing about a book of true crime short stories: By the end, they all blended together.

This is my first Ann Rule read. She grasps you with the Intro alone and keeps you reading until the very end. Really appreciated the Updates at the end of each tragic story. A must-read!

8 updated cases, but I've read them before and the updates were rather short. I'd also read the 3 new cases in another bool/

I don't like the way Rule writes, she puts in so much descriptions that it just takes up pages, instead just stick with the story to make it more interesting instead of trying to wade through pages and pages of describing everything.

This is a great book if you have never read TRUE CRIME novels before. It covers 12 cases some new and some she has written about before. Ann Rule is a master and spend so much time researching and getting to know everyone involved in these true cases. The victims families, the law enforcement detectives, the jurors and most importantly the criminals themselves. Well written and easy to pick up and be able to put down after one or two cases.

12 true crime cases from Ann Rules files. Hardback
In eight stunning Case Files volumes, from A Rose for Her Grave to the #1 blockbuster Last Dance, Last Chance, Ann Rule reigns as "America's best true-crime writer" (Kirkus Reviews). Now, she updates the most astonishing cases from that acclaimed series -- and presents shocking, all-new true-crime accounts -- in one riveting anthology. In every explosive chapter of Without Pity, Ann Rule deepens her unrelenting exploration of the evil that lies behind the perfect facades of heartless killers...and the deadly compulsions of greed and power that shatter their outward trappings of material success.

They are the admired, trusted neighbor; the affable family man; the sexy, charismatic lover; the high-achieving professional. Perhaps most frightening of all is that they are heroes in their own minds. But when someone gets in the way of their deluded dreams, they are capable of deadly acts of violence with no remorse. Analyzing the true nature of the sociopathic mind in chilling detail, Ann Rule traces the murderous crimes of seemingly ordinary men -- killers who drew their unsuspecting victims into their twisted worlds with devastating consequences.
