Description

From America's most celebrated true-crime writer comes the heartbreaking, real-life drama of a doomed young woman hopelessly trapped in a web of sexual intrigue, political manipulation, and emotional deception by her charming and successful -- but ultimately deadly -- lover.

On June 27, 1996, thirty-year-old Anne Marie Fahey, who was the scheduling secretary for the governor of Delaware, had dinner with a man she had been having a secret affair with for more than two years. "Tommy" Capano, forty-seven, was perhaps the most politically powerful man in Wilmington. Although recently estranged from his wife, he was a devoted father to his four beautiful young daughters, the trusted son of his widowed mother, and the backbone of his extended family. But sometime after 9:15 that night something terrible happened to Anne Marie. It would be forty-eight hours before her brothers and sisters realized that she had disappeared entirely.

Ann Rule brilliantly traces the lives of both Fahey and Capano as she discloses the intimate details of their ill-fated bonding. A vulnerable, trusting woman becomes spellbound by a charming, duplicitous married man, and what begins as a seemingly unremarkable affair is slowly transformed into an obsessive, convoluted, and deadly relationship.

Destined to become a classic, ...And Never Let Her Go is a riveting account of forbidden love and murder among the rich and powerful, and a chilling insight into the evil that sometimes hides behind even the most charming facade.

    Good, but spent too much time on details leading up to the crime, much of it repetition. Could've cut 10% easily.

    While the facts of the case of Tom Capano are interesting, the writing is dry, stilted and peppered with rhetoric. There is no mystery about who did what, no suspense and no question who the bad guy is here. I would have preferred a more novel-like accounting, with a little mystery as to the outcome.

    The story is so well know around the Philadelphia & Delaware areas yet Ann Rule shows her talents as she write and molds the background of each and every character and goes way into the mind of Tom Capano. Ann Marie will be missed yet her memory will live on in this book. Thanks

    A friend lent me this book a long time ago. It was in a pile of TBR's. I have decided that during my unemployment phase(I hope to see it end someday)that I will read non-fiction in the daytime and fiction at night!So this was the first book I picked up. I could not put it down and read and finished it in about 3 days.A significant anniversary is coming up for the poor Fahey families and all their friends. It has been almost 15 years since a psychopath amongst us,Thomas Capano premeditated and killed Anne Marie Fahey some way and dumped her body 65 miles out off Stone Harbor,NJ in what is called Mako alley.While having a 3 year affair with Anne Marie this creep carried on various other affairs all through the years. Including one with a woman for 18 years or so. What this woman and Anne Marie had in common was growing up without mothers. I think this made them very open to just about any man who occasionally showed them affection and attention. Growing up without a reliable parent or a place to live made Anne Marie very,very hesitant to ask for any kind of help. I think this was her downfall as I think most woman who endured what she had with Capano would have had not as much need to constantly prove their independence to themselves and would have alerted SOMEBODY to his stalking ways.Capano's evil ways did not end with her murder. While in jail in order to get more phone time he bought other inmates phone time by giving them his 4 daughters pictures and email addresses. Know sex offenders and molesters in this group. When his mistress of 18 years would no longer follow his orders from jail he plotted to first have her house robbed and trashed. He later wanted to have her killed.Ann Rule is the best crime writer we have today and this book although 12 years old did not disappoint.

    Love Ann Rule!! How a man like Tom Capano could manage to deceive THREE women into thinking they were his one true love boggles the mind. Quit reading if you don't know the final results. His version of Ms. Fahey's death was so hokey I could hardly believe HE thought anyone would believe it! New editions would have to add his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment, incidentally.

    This guy just couldn't get enough. The read was good, it was even better seeing it replayed out on Court TV.
