Good read per usual for Ann Rule. I didn't know she was that involved with him, in other words, I wasn't aware that the author was such a steady friend. Scary!!! It is a fairly fast paced book and doesn't get bogged down in lengthy descriptions as some of her other novels do. It kept me glued to it!

This is a chilling account of a case that I only vaguely remember from my childhood. It was a little tough to get into reading, but once you get past the first few chapters it's a tough one to put down.

Anne Rule started her crime-writing career by accident when she realized the serial murderer she was helping to investigate bore a striking resemblance to her former coworker and friend, Ted Bundy.

The best and most detailed and revealing story of this famous murderer ever written. Fantastic photos as well, including a personal letter written by Bundy to the author. A frighteningly close look into the mind and habits of a cold-blooded killer who managed to fool a lot of people for a while . . .

This tour de force is Ann Rule's first true crime bestseller. It tells the story of serial killer Ted Bundy, who just happened to be Ms. Rule's acquaintance during the early years of his killing spree. The book recounts Bundy's crimes and Ms. Rule's shock as she comes to understand that the likeable young man she knows is a brutal and clever serial killer of women. A memorable read.

This edition includes several updates to the book after the original edition came out. It is a fasinating look at one of the worst serial killers this country has seen, as seen through the eyes of a woman who knew him. Fantastic read.
