Ann Rule provides details from the case files of several brutal crimes and accurately profiles the monsters who perpetrated them. Rule takes the listener back to the 1960s and '70s, to Washington and Oregon, where she worked, first as a police officer, then as a reporter. She explores the ways love--or something that passed for love--was twisted into obsession, perverse and deadly. Staci Snell reads with unflinching accuracy. Even delivering the most shocking details, her reading is sensitive without becoming overemotional. Rule provides a fascinating look at the way cases are investigated and, combined with Snell's reading, offers a warning for women who are too gullible, too eager to be polite, or too willing to accept blame for the actions of the men they love.
