Ann Rule is at the top of her form in this book. No true crime writer is better at characterization. You are made to feel that you know the characters and can't help but care about them.

This story will be on TV this weekend and try not to miss it. The book, by Ann Rule, was a "can't put it down, sit on the edge of your seats story. Ann Rule writes with such indepth detail and describes the people involved in perfect detail. I always look forward to reading an Ann Rule book.

Here we have a handsome dentist whose beautiful wife commits suicide. Or does she? Come to find out that years ago another woman in his life also took her life. UMM? Coincidence?

Another wonderful true crime from the best---Ann Rule.....

Another great read from Ann Rule. She's the best at fleshing out the back stories of the victims and their families. It's filled with details, but never tedious. When you are done reading, you feel as if you know these people. Ann is a master in this genre.

As hard as I tried to stick with this I just couldn't!

I don't understand why true crime writers have to always go back to the day everyone was born, that just doesn't have anything to do with why they are murdered or why they are a murderer.

This involves 2 murders and believe me--she goes back into every aspect of everyone's past and it just isn't necessary, just the facts mam please!

I found it so tedious to try to read every single description in this book about each character and it just got boring because she didn't move along with the crime and had to get into the pasts of everyone.

The pictures I didn't find interesting at all, who really cares what the victim looked like at birth, first grade, senior in high school, and on and on--

so I just quit and probably won't be trying anymore of Rule's books.

oh and by the way, this book is not 544 pages but 407 unless you read the Afterword apart.

True story of murder and betrayal written by best woman author in the true crime business. Gives in depth development of the individuals involved in these true events set in Atlanta Georgia. Aspects of unbelievability; that one man could fool so many with his behavior over quite a length of time, that a wife could become so desparate as to turn to the internet for understanding and escape. Surprising turn of events occur frequently.
