From Library Journal
Shocking events led to Delaware's 1999 "trial of the century," which crime writer Rule (Bitter Harvest) investigates. Beyond murder and detection, she explores the participants' minds and personalities. She focuses on pretty Anne Marie Fahey, a 30-year-old single woman with poverty and unhappiness in her past but who as secretary to the governor always smiled. When she vanished, law enforcers discovered her three-year affair with a wealthy married man, Thomas Capano, who at 43 was handsome, unsmiling, and fierce when crossed. Suspicion builds with clues such as a missing gun registered to Capano's main mistress; his purchase of a large plastic cooler, set adrift at sea; his rug and sofa, dumped by his shady brothers; and, finally, two murder contracts. Reader Melissa Leo's lovely, methodical voice underplays dramatic scenes; even a joyous phrase, "It was a good time," carries gloom. A worthy addition to general collections and for true crime fans.

The writer takes you to the relationship between Ann Marie and Tom, gives you understanding of his control over her, her fear of him, her desire to move on and escape his control, his manipulation and lying, not to mention his out and out lust for every skirt he could find. The writer shows you how Tom Capano had no soul, how he threw everyone under the bus just to save his own neck. Great writing by Ann Rule, great writing.
Tom Capano was a moderately successful lawyer from a rich family. He had a beautiful wife, living daughters, and a mistress who would do anything for him.
Yet he HAD to have Anne Marie.
For three years, he and Anne had a turbulent, on-and-off-again affair. He tried to dominate every aspect of her life, and she allowed him because she thought it was showing how much he loved her.
Once she started getting her life together, Anne started pulling away from Tom, realizing he was just trying to control her.
Ann Rule has once again written a compelling story of human pathos and wanting. In "And Never Let Her Go," she tells the sad story of a young woman who never really had a chance. After a childhood starved of affection and stumbling through her adulthood, Anne Marie had finally found happiness with her boyfriend and in her professional life. That is until Tom Capano, a man who swore he loved her, decided that, if he couldn't have her, no one could.
Through personal histories and documentation of the trial, Ann Rule takes you into a hurricane of pathos.
This is a great read for mystery and true crime fans alike.
Anne Marie was so beautiful and full of life and Capano-pure evil. How he killed her, disposed of her and then tried to pin it on his long time lover who he also controlled sickened me. The thing about Annie was she saw him for what he was (in time) she was trying to get him out of her life but it was her kindness and compassion for the well being of others that put her int that horrible place that night -it must have been pure evil against pure goodness and I hate to say that evil won that night. We will never ever know what really happen but am prettty sure it wasn't the versions handed to the public by Capano and Co. (his attorneys).
Surprisingly I googled Tom Capano after finishing the book to see if he had been executed or if a date was set and found he died in prision of natural causes.
I finished the book and thought about Annie-I have no doubt she would have married the wonderful man she was dating while trying to break out of the grip of TC. She had such a tough childhood it made me sad to see how her life ended when she had so very much going for her.
This is about the 4th Ann Rule book I have read & will continue to read her books.
