bleh. I am some what disappointed with my second venture into the world of Ann Rule. I read her book on Ted Bundy with a lot of enjoyment and despite it’s long length was sad to see it end, it was so beautifully written. I put Green River, Running Red onto my list at the library because I am fascinated by so many crimes committed in my back yard.
I found this book not nearly as well written. It was repetitive and convoluted. It talked too often in my taste of the writer and her own notoriety, as though she got into the habit of inserting herself into the story with the Bundy book and couldn’t get out of it with this one even though she did not know this killer.
I don’t know. I guess I feel like the victims got so little airtime in this book. 650 plus pages and each victim got 2 paragraphs to 2 pages each.
Maybe I’m just cranky. And then I caught her in a mistake. Did you know Scott Peterson is on death row at Alcatraz? He is according to Ann Rule. Oops.
℘℘℘ – Three pages. I read it. It was not fabulous. I was happy when it was done. I will not be checking out additional books by this author. ‘nough said.

Nice use of passive tense there. The crimes were simply committed in your back yard, you had nothing to do with them, right 😉
