I have been reading Anne Rule's TC books ever since her first many years ago. I have to say the last two books I have read (especially this one)have been very disappointing.
She repeats herself through out the book which gets really annoying. Especially from such a noted author. I also wonder why editing didn't pick up on that and fix it?
For sure this is a very biased book. Ann Rule's animosity for Lysa seeps through every page. I find it hard to believe such polar opposites are true. That Chris was all good and Lysa was all bad. That just isn't real life.
This book just seems like a quickly written formula book with no real substance. I expect more from Ann Rule. I expect interviews from all sides and not a one sided book.
I do think that Lysa has huge issues but I also think Chris was a documented abuser and alcoholic. I have lived around too many high functioning alcoholics and have seen first hand how easily they can fool people.
