I just finished reading it and boy was it great!  Love Ann Rule!  :)

The copy I have is well worn and has a picture page missing.  All readable pages are there.  Does anyone want it before I send it off to the local FOL?  You don't even have to order from my shelf.  Just PM me and I'll send it off.

I so agree, Nicki!  She was a scary one!

I agree that this is one of Ann Rule's best books. Didn't the woman kill her kids while listening to a Duran Duran song--Hungry like the wolf or something like that? Or Eye of the Tiger? I'm bad with song titles..   when ever i hear that song played on the radio--which is rare--I always get flashbacks to this novel. Gives me the shivers.

 jody JF Smoke, Mirrors, and Murder by Ann Rule---OK, but still not as good as her older ones like Small Sacrifices.

Jody - It was Hungry Like a Wolf. I saw the movie (haven't read the book) but every time I hear that song, I picture Farah Fawcett drumming her fingers and sort of dancing to the song as they played it in court.

oh, good-I'm glad i'm not the only one! I have to say it sort of recked the enjoyment i used to get out of that song. I'm 41 so when that song was "hot"  I was a teenager.
