This book was wonderfully entertaining -- I could hardly believe it was true. Usually I can tell by reading the captions under the pictures in the middle of the book generally what happened. Not so in this case. Ann did her usual wonderful job of taking me through the life of each character. However, when the crime began, the partners in crime changed so much and Kevin still remained such a close friend that I wondered almost to the end if he was going to get sucked into this horrible plan. The book was excellent, Ann did a wonderful job of introducing all of the characters to the reader. For the first time, I felt a little sorry for the criminal in the end (because of the end). Ann had taken me through his entire life so well that I felt I knew him. This book was especially interesting to me because I work in the criminal justice field and was amazed that these guys were able to get away with what they did for so long. I highly recommend this book to any true-crime reader.

I'm quite surprised by the number of rave reviews this book has. I've read at least eight of Anne Rule's books and I loved most, but this was incredibly boring. A lot of time is spent describing the earlier carefree lives of several characters and apparently little happened then that was worth reading about. And I was totally put off by the assignment of blame onto one character and even his family. Even if he was the brains behind the crimes his friends joined him of their own free will. They had plenty of other options and were grown men who chose for themselves their eventual fate.

I have always loved Ann Rules books but this one with the main story about that bank robber was not up to her usual talents. It just wasn't as interesting as all the others.

I am 51 years old and I live in St.Peters, Mo. I am an avid reader and love Ann Rule's books on true crime. Most of her books take place in the northwest states of Washington and Oregon. I have traveled several times to this region which I call "Ann Rule Country". I work for myself in the lawn mowing business and I have plenty of time from December to April in which to read and also to travel. I have a wife and 9 year old daughter who accompany me on many of my journeys. On my last trip, we visited the Columbia River Gorge area and climbed up to the top of Beacon Rock, about 600 feet tall. It was one of the most amazing and eerie things I've ever done. This is a lava dome, or the inside of a long ago volcano and also the site of a famous murder. The case is written about by Ann Rule in her book, "A Rose For Her Grave". The murderer threw his wife off of this rock and collected insurance money. This was my favorite Ann Rule Book until I picked up a copy of "The End Of The Dream". This is now my favorite of her books. I plan to go up to the northwest in a year or two and investigate the place where Scott Scurlock called home. He was the subject of the book and was one of the most fascinating people you could ever read about. He lived in maybe the biggest and tallest treehouse in the world near Olympia Wa. Scott Scurlock and the other important characters were free spirit people who enjoyed adventure and living on the edge. We all have known a guy like Scott Scurlock at some time in our lives; the guy that everyone likes and admires; the guy who might get you in serious trouble but also the guy who just might give you some of the most fun and exciting times of your life. Most people like this turn out fine and become fine people, but a few like the subject of this book take a dark path.Read more ›

Ms. Rule's book is full of misinformation. I knew Scott for many years and thought of him as a brother. I am friend of the men who are in prision. As a former journalist, I am surprised that Rule can call her book a "true" crime story. She put quotation marks around people's statements whom she never spoke with and I know this for a fact! This book is causing further injury to friends and family who have already been hurt by this tragedy. Kevin Meyers, one of Rule's main sources of information, is not the most reliable character. A couple of her other sources misrepresented themselves as "friends" of Scott, Kevin and Mark. I sense that they are either trying to cleanse their own guilt,trying to make a fast buck, or reach for their 30 seconds of fame. In the meantime Rule and others line their pockets with cash from the death of my friend. To me their acts are a type of "robbery."

The End of the Dream, by Ann Rule is about the adventures of a man named Scott Scurlock. It seems as though Scott was constantly seeking danger. He is the kind of person who felt that he always had to out-do everyone else. Scott lived in Washington State in an enourmous tree house. He has a mass of curly almost-black hair and he dresses like a bum, but the girls love him. Scott lived in a dream world but his thirst for danger would aventually overcome him. He had made money in the drug dealing business by growing and selling marijuanna in Hawaii and later producing methamphetamines. Scott soon found the ultimate adrenaline rush, which happened to be robbing banks.
Scott stole well over one million dollars and eventually earned himself the nickname,"Hollywood". He had great disguises and remarkable getaways. He was living like a king and getting away with everything. Scott's dream came to an end in a shoot-out with the police.
This book came to my attention because Scott Scurlock had graduated from Herndon High School which is where I go to school now. Although Scott made some bad decisions, he was really an amazing person and I wish I could have met him.
