I’LL BE WATCHING YOU

Walking home on a dark night, you hear footsteps coming up behind you. As they get closer, your heart pounds harder. Who is closing in with dangerous intent—a total stranger? Or someone you know and trust? The answer is as simple as turning around, but don’t look behind you . . . run. Ann Rule, who shared her own nerve-jangling account of unknowingly befriending sadistic sociopath Ted Bundy in The Stranger Beside Me, chronicles other fateful encounters with the hidden predators among us in this riveting collection, fifteenth in the bestselling series drawn from her personal files. First in line is a stunning case that spanned thirty years and took a determined detective to four states—ending, finally, in Alaska—where he unraveled not one but two murders. A second case appears to begin and end with the hunt for the Green River Killer, focusing on a Washington State man who was once cleared as a suspect in that deadly chain of homicides. But the millionaire property owner believed he had successfully buried his own murderous past and the awful truth behind his young wife’s disappearance. She vanished soon after she left for a day at the Seattle World’s Fair, and her three small children grew up believing their mother had abandoned them. But one amazing witness remained—the missing woman’s best friend, who heard her last words in a frantic phone call—“He’s coming!”—before the line went dead. Only since Robert Hansen’s suicide has the monster within been revealed. In another true story, a petite woman went to a tavern, looking only for conversation and fun. Instead, she met violent death in the form of a seven-foot man who had seemed shy and harmless. You’ll feel a chill as you uncover these and numerous other cases of unfortunate victims who made one tragic mistake: trusting the wrong person—even someone they’d known intimately, or thought they knew.

This book helped me remember why I am not a fan of her True crime cases.
The problem is that she writes these books a lot and that her stand alone books come out once every 4 years! or so. I prefer the latter.

Sorry to Ann Rule fans but I feel she is writing more to earn money now than that her heart is in it.

Even her first couple of true crime cases books, were so much better.

The last book she wrote and I loved was Too Late to Say Goodbye. A great read, but then I am talking about a book that was published in 2007! She did write another stand alone last year but I read so many negative reviews, I decided to take a rain check. I will read it one day.

The thing is, what this author does and what annoys the hell out of me, She did it in Heart Full of Lies and according to all the reviews, also in her last book: In The Still of The Night, that is that she worships the person who was murdered. They are always perfect, have hardly any mistakes, while the perpetrators are all only bad. Don't mind the latter but the making an angel from someone, makes me crazy. Yes even more! ;)

As someone else mentioned, she also has the tendency (like Stephen King) to write herself in her books. As with this book.

In the first story she mentions a couple of times that this woman lived in the same town. That her kids were in the same school as the children in this book. (They did not even know the kids!)

To my annoyance I finished the first story which was very dry and not the best story, to discover this case was not solved at all!

The other stories were not much better. I will give it 2 stars but do not recommend.read more

Ann Rule needs to hire a good editor. The quality of her books isn't what it used to be. In this one, especially in the main story, she repeats herself quite often.read more
