It's ok. As typical for every Ann Rule book, she presents the stories as good vs evil. People are either all good or all bad in her stories instead of being real people...it's a little tiring. I'm not saying that the criminals in her books haven't done bad things, but her telling of the stories is a bit simplistic and cut & dried. Nothing in life is that simple.

Ann Rule writes a clear and mesmerizing true crime book about a professional man who tries to kill his wife with arsenic. He has a girlfriend and debts (the usual motives)and thinks this is the most expedient way to go about it. It takes his wife a long time to believe her husband would want to kill her. It's only after she becomes so ill and crippled from the effects of the arsenic that truth starts to hit her. This is another book explaining why arsenic is banned in many states and how easy it is to catch a killer with today's modern forensics. And this was written before forensics became so advanced and refined!

This is a true story about murder. A fraudulant doctor-sociopath has lived his life with deception and deadly consequences ensue. His own schemes backfire.

This story is based on a true "Headlined-Making Case". The book even includes real pictures of the people involved.

It's a great book for people who love murder-mystery stories, but this book is even better because it actually happened.
