I wish she would have written this one later in her career as the book would have been even more detailed. Nonetheless, it is a story that can make the hair on your neck prickle from the absolute evil in some people.
I love true stories this one did not disappoint me .....a true crime story based in Anchorage Alaska..a crime that began in Washington state that began in the summer of 1957....about one of the most savage sex killers of our time...
I love a good Ann Rule book. Greeat account of what happened to these women. Very sad, but at least justice was served. Although I am sure not enough for the families. I wanted to reach in the book and hurt this sick man. For some reason I was drawn in this book for the plight of the women.
