About the Author
More About the Author
I graduated in Creative Writing from the U of Washington, with minors in criminology and psychology. I also have an AA degree in law enforcement, taking classes in crime scene investigation, arrest, search and seizure, crime scene photography and forensic science. I've lectured in seminars all across America to detectives, prosecutors, and even at the FBI Academy. My subjects have been serial murder, high profile offenders, and women who kill. I write two books every year--one hardcover single-case book, and one Ann Rule's True Crime Files original paperback. Although people tend to think I write only about the Northwest, I go wherever the cases are most interesting. I've written about murder cases in Florida, Georgia, New York, Kansas, Texas, Hawaii, and California, too.
I raised five children on my own--starting out with articles for baby care magazines, Sunday features, true confessions, and then "slicks" like Cosmopolitan, Ladies' Home Journal, Good Housekeeping, and Reader's Digest. Now, my children are grown.
I like to keep in very close touch with my readers, and I'm able to do that with a weblog and a guestbook on my website pages at www.annrules.com This also gives readers a chance to talk with each other, and its' a pretty lively spot--as I'm sure this page will be.
To choose a book subject, I weed through about 3,000 suggestions from readers. I'm looking for an "anti-hero" whose eventual arrest shocks those who knew him (or her): attractive, brilliant, charming, popular, wealthy, talented, and much admired in their communities--but really hiding behind masks.
I'm a reader myself, and I always have several books going at once--one upstairs, downstairs, near the bathtub, in my car, and beside my hammock (in the summer, of course!)

That said, this book contains two novella length stories including a lesser known one, the deaths of Becky Zahau and child Maxfield Shacknai. There are also some older cases included as well. There is a great deal of pictures in the paperback version: I noticed people said the Kindle had none. All that said and aside, I began reading Rule's books as a young teenager and they really woke me up as far as standing up for my rights as a female and never tolerating being treated like property by a man. I wish I would have read her sooner and listened more to her advice. I can see value in reading her books both for TC fans and if I had a young daughter, I would likely make her sit down and read some of her finer works as well.
when the photos aren't there, yet the don't tell you before you buy it. It's almost like false
advertising. You are not getting the complete book that you THINK you're getting, yet they don't offer
Refunds. (At least not as far as I know).

Ann Rule never disappoints. Sadly we will never get to read another book by her. She was a great one; well informed, did her homework and knew these stories inside and out. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Shelly L. Teubner

Although this book kept my interest, it is a typical Ann Rule book. I would recommend the book to those that like Ann Rule and to those that are interested in true crime stories.Published 3 months ago by Ellieb53
