Stick to True Crime
on October 25, 2001
Anne Rule should stick to true crime, I purchased this book thinking it would be a great read and I got very bored with it. The story is vaguely familiar and it just didn't flow right. At the end, it seemed that even Ann bored of it and had to finish it off somehow. It reads more like a male sex fantasy and the female character is so weak that she succumbs so easily kind of threw me. I thought the story would be more like "Kiss the Girls" where the victim has to fight to live and overcomes the horrendous fear. It just left me feeling that it was a waste of time reading it. It was meant to be a psychological thriller but it didn't achieve that for me as an avid true crime reader. I've read better from her and I was disappointed.
