I had this one on my shelf for a while before actually reading it. I do enjoy Ann Rule's books but didn't think I'd like the shorter stories but I really did. Very engrossing and extremely well written, highly recommended.

Former Marine sergeant and judo instructor Roland Pitre, Jr. claimed it was all an elaborate plan to win back his wife's love..it wasn't supposed to end with her dead body in the trunk of a car. Nearly 20 yrs. later, he acknowledged that he hired someone to kill his estranged wife in 1988, though his alleged excuse for why a monstrous "mistake" happened is as shocking and convoluted as the crime itself. Eventually, he was charged with first-degree murder in the long-unsloved death of Cheryl Pitre, after a mysterious witness betrayed Pitre to save his own skin. Tracing back the dark and boody path of Pitre's life, two generations of detectives found a chain of brutal and terrifying crimes by a man who manipulated the courts and prisons to walk free.
Go deep inside the darkest crimes and twisted minds of the most baffling killers and schemers..with this collection of chilling cases from Ann Rule, "America's best true-crime writer" (Krikus Reviews).

One of Ms. Rule's best books...albeit I've not read all of her works. She does a good job of developing the characters' personalities and their lives in such detail. True Crime.

Why would a man kill his lover's husband and then his wife, the woman who fought successfully to have him paroled from prison? Why would he risk arrest by kidnapping the child of another woman who adored him? Because they were worth more dead.

Another great collection of true crime cases, collected by Ann Rule.

The main story ("Worth More Dead") was a little slow in my opinion, but the other shorter stories in the book were wonderfully chilling.

Didn't make it through the first one because it was so long and draggy and I lost interest, second one didn't sound good and the rest didn't interest me, I think she writes with just way too much descriptions and I'd rather have a Dateline version---short and to the point.
