2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 8 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reason for Reading: It's been years since I read this type of true crime. I used to read it a lot. I had been wanting to get back into reading something like this and who better to start with than Ann Rule. I read a couple of her books waaaay back at the beginning of her career, but I had never read one of her crime file collections before.

The publisher's summary and information on the book itself is quite careful in not letting the reader know which cases are discussed in the book, except the Powell case, so I will not reveal that information either. I really enjoyed this read and the format of 8 separate cases made it easy to pick up and read a chapter at a time once the two beginning 'novella' sized cases had been presented. I enjoy Rule's writing, she has little sympathy for the offenders and yet on the rare occasion can show compassion *if* it is warranted. Rule does not go into gory details, but she does not gloss over the heinous acts either. First and foremost her objective is to preserve the victim's dignity while letting the reader know the seriousness of the crime but not crossing over into that which would become voyeuristic. I appreciated this style of writing and Rule's own concern and compassion for those she writes about is evident.

The book has a theme of murders/rapes committed by friends or neighbours though not every story sticks precisely to that theme. It starts off with two 'novella' length cases then the next six are short story length. The first case is the Susan Powell case, an extremely tragic story which started in 2009 and continued right up to the time of the author writing the book. Next follows a strange tale where the police have closed the case on two deaths that occurred within 24 hours of each other in the same house.

Not one of her better books. It would seem that she has gone back to her crime magazine stories from the 70s.

I love Ann Rule usually and I am a huge fan of crime mystery fictions. However, I didn't pay attention to the fact that this is about true events. I don't like reading true events because it involves real people who are brutally murdered. I'll stick to the fictions!
I would give an opinion about Ann's writing in this novel if I had been able to finish it. I couldn't get through the first chapter for the reasons I mentioned above.

Ann Rule is the best writer when it comes to true crime!!! She is the author I return to time after time. Once you start reading one of her books it is hard to put it down......she definitely keeps your attention.
