I'm reading a library copy of Ann Rule's new book.  It is great!!!  I just read another authors take on this story but I can't remember what book it was.  I also saw a Dateline or 48 Hours program about the crime...so I feel like an expert. Ann Rule has even more information and talks about an affair that the dentist Corbin had that the other book didn't mention.  She is really good at getting background material.  This is one of her better books...even though I knew the story it was still riveting..

Yay!  I can't wait to read it.  The book has gotten outstanding reviews on Amazon.  I hope it becomes a best seller!

Ann Rule is my favorite true crime author. She really does her homework getting all the information and writes truly riveting stories. I am going to look forward to reading this new one. It is on my wish list.

Misty, THE STRANGER BESIDE ME   is the first book I read of hers. It was so good.  I read other books about Ted Bundy but loved hers the best.

I love Ann Rule.  I all her books in hardback except I have The Want-Ad Killer, The I-5 Killer and Lust Killer in paperback and looking for the hardback.  Also, I am still looking for Too Late To Say Goodbye in hardback.

I am very excited to read her latest book. I agree that The Stranger Beside Me was the best Ted Bundy book written.  She just never disappoints me.


just finished Seduced by Madness: The True Story of the Susan Polk Murder Case by Carol Pogash. For me, this rated as a must read for true crime fans.

I'm currently reading The Stranger Beside Me and it is such an incredible story!

I kind of think of myself as a True Crime burnout, I've read so many that it really takes a great story to make me totally hooked on a book, like this has.

A must read for any true crime fan, for sure!

             I think The Stranger Beside Me was one of Ann Rules'  best books. I still think about it to this day. I am really excited because i got her latest book from the library today!!
