Ann Rule's 2014 newest book: 'Lying in Wait & Other Cases'. People say Rule has lost her edge, but I found this one just like the old Rule. A couple of her newer ones felt too sympathetic to victim's families or just overworked, but the 6 or 7 cases in this book were very interesting. Just good old true crime writing in the reporting style.
