And Never Let Her Go - Thomas Capano: The Deadly Seducer
And Never Let Her Go - Thomas Capano The Deadly Seducer Author:Ann Rule The shattering crime story that shocked the nation: the Thomas Capano murder case. On a June evening in 1996, 30-year-old Anne Marie Fahey, secretary to the governor of Delaware, vanished without a trace following a restaurant rendezvous with her secret lover of more than two years: Thomas Capano. One of Wilmington's most prominent and respected... more » figures, a millionaire attorney and former state prosecutor, "Tommy" was a charming, soft spoken family man. But in the weeks and months that followed Fahey's disappearance, investigators would gradually uncover the shocking truth: Capano was a steely manipulator driven by power and greed -- and capable of brutal murder.
In a riveting narrative expertly documented by probing interviews, diary entries, and e-mail correspondence, and with superb insight into the twisted motivations of a killer, Ann Rule chronicles a real-life drama of Shakespearian proportions: ambitions fall, love turns to obsession, family names are tainted, the facade of success crumbles -- and a beautiful but vulnerable young woman pays the ultimate price in a convoluted and deadly relationship.« less

Frightening account of a powerful man from a powerful family and his obsession with a younger woman. Read the book in almost one sitting. Ann Rule is very descriptive and uses lots of dialog.....she's a wonderful author.
A gruesome crime, told with Rule's customary thorough attention to detail. Some of Capano's statements are so implausible that one cannot imagine how he (an intelligent person) could even utter them. As a reader, I was left with sadness that a bright and likeable young woman would attach herself to such an exploitative, heartless and destructive man.
Real attention keeper...live close to the area, so it was very close to home with locations. Strange to know the crime could happen and be solved with such little evidence. Creative writing, very good book!! A+++
Absolutely riveting. Of course, I love all of Ann Rule's books! This one was especially interesting because it involved a male lawyer of good standing with the community who almost got away with murder. He is a true psychopath and most manipulative. It is interesting to see how people like this entrap innocent victims in their web.
