One of Rule's better-written books, not as lengthy, and more controlled than her other books.

From the front dust jacket: "A true story of desire and death "Heart Full of Lies" by Ann Rule Bestselling author of "Every Breath you Take""

from inside the dust jacket:

In perrhaps the most profound character portrait she has ever drawn,Ann Rule asks: Can the female really be deadlier thant he male? In this story, she answers that question in one of her ost intriguing tales ever--a riveting true story of seduction, betrayal, and murder.

...On a sunny morning in Oct 2000, Chris Northon (athletic and handsome blond-haired pilot for Hawaiian Airlines) lay dead in a sleeping bag at a campsite beside a pristine river, while his wife drove four hours to a friend's house, sobbing inconsolably. She appeared to have been beaten, and had a black eye and bruises on her knee. Was Chris's death a tragic accident or a deliberate homicide? Was his wife involved? Oregon state detectives were suspicious, but her family and friends stood staunchly by her incredulous that anybody would ask such questions.
