Another Ann Rule awesome true story. "If anything ever happens to me, promise me tha tyou will see that there is an investigation...and find Ann Rule and ask her to write my story." Sheila Blackthorne Bellush told her sister after she divorced multimillionaire Allan Blackthorne. Ann Rule untangles a horrific web of lies that culminated in Sheila's savage murder more than twn years after she left Blackthorne.

When beautiful, blond Sheila married the charming, handsome Alan Blackthorne, she was convinced she had found her perfect soul mate, and helped him reach his goal of living the privileged life of the country club set. But behind Allen's smooth facade, she discovered a violent, controlling sociopath-a liar, a scam artist, a sexual defiant. When she finally fled with their two young daughters, she was skeletally thin, bruised, and beaten. Although Sheila recovered, remarried, and was starting a new life and family, she still felt she was doomed.

This is the first full-length book by Ann Rule that I've read, but it won't be the last. What a twisted tale of abuse, legal wrangling, and brutal murder. Rule begins at the very beginning, with her main characters' parents' marriages, and walks us through Sheila's and Allen's lives apart, together, and apart again. Unlike a novelist, Rule cannot spring a surprise ending on her readers, so she must keep us enthralled by writing well, and she does.

I really liked this one. The story about a woman who actually asked that Ann Rule write her story if anything happened to her. You really feel that you know these people. They could be your neighbors.

Couldn't put the book down. Shocking to read how evil one man can be. May he never be released from prison.

This is one of Ann Rule's best books in my opinion although I haven't yet met a Rule book I haven't liked. She definitely rules the true crime arena in my book!

As with all Ann Rules books this one really help me spellbound. What some men won't do for control. Ms Rule has a way of putting you in the mind of her characters. And this book is no exception.
