A little disapointed. The last story (Minister's Wife) had alot more of Ann's opinions than I like. Other wise a good book.

I don't always like Anne Rule not becauce of her writing, but because of her subject matter. That said I really enjoyed this book. The stories were interesting and the last one about the minister's wife was right on.
We never know what goes on at our neighbor's house when they pull down the shades.

I love anything by Ann Rule so of course I loved her newest book too. The stories are interesting and fascinating. The last story is the Mary Winkler case (The Ministers Wife) and I learned facts about the case that I don't believe the media covered as in depth as they should of. If you like the true crime genre you will love this book!

this book was another great read from true crime Ann Rule. I especially enjoy the short stories about each case. The shorter format is easier to read and to know that not all of the cases she reviews end with murder.

I love any book by Ann Rule, who is a very famous True Crimes author, who wrote and worked with the serial killer, Ted Bundy. These are short descriptive true tales about killers and how or if these crimes were solved. A very good book, as usual, from this author.

Ann Rule does it again. A must read for any fan of Ann or true crime with the lessons learned from the stories within.

Leading true crime author gives multiple case history stories of crimes all with the element of what is real and what is appearing to be real. Very readable!

Ann Rule's books are the best! She knows criminology, which has been her life's work, and she knows that area of which she writes. I always enjoy her books, and have ready every one!
