The author of The Stranger Beside Me brings her brilliantly
informed understanding of the sociopath to this riveting
truecrime collection. Only Ann Rule, who unknowingly worked
alongside the smart and charming Ted Bundy -- America's most
notorious serial killer -- could lend her razor-sharp
insight into these cases of the spouse, lover, family
member, or helpful stranger who is totally trusted but whose
lethally violent nature, though masterfully disguised, can
and will kill. Featured here is the case of a Southern
California family man who appeared to be the picture of
healthy living with his expertise in naturopathic healing.
Luring a beautiful flight attendant into a passionate
affair, he swept her away to a secluded home on the Oregon
coast where his jealous rages escalated, ultimately leading
to a brutal sex attack in which she believed she would die.
How this brave victim survived, never knowing her
tormentor's whereabouts, and how he resurfaced, forcing a
tragic end for all involved, makes this one of Ann Rule's
most compelling narratives. Other cases include that of the
woman who masterminded her husband's murder to gain his
inheritance...the monstrous sadist whose prison release
damaged a presidential candidate's campaign and ended in a
bitter double tragedy in a quiet neighborhood three thousand
miles away...the shocking DNA link between a cold-blooded
crime and a cold case...and inside the horrific case of the
man who crossed an ocean and several countries to stalk the
Eurasian beauty who had fled from him in desperation.
