Synopsis

The centerpiece of this chilling collection is the history of Randy Roth, a "modern-day Bluebeard" who specialized in marrying women and then killing them for insurance and Social Security benefits. Rule ( Everything She Ever Wanted ) traces Roth's crimes thoroughly and does an equally complete job of providing information on the investigative side of the story, such as the difficulties of being a female prosecutor. The remaining shorter cases come from Rule's "archives": a rapist returns after eight years in prison to kill the woman who put him there along with her daughter and a neighbor; a jilted husband hires a female "hit person" to kill his estranged wife; a 13-year-old girl disappears after tending to the mobile home of a friend on vacation; a sadistic killer murders a woman, chops her up and disposes of her dismembered body in a slough; and a young, single woman is strangled by a neighbor pretending to be her protector. In a brief introduction to each, Rule discusses the effect of the individual case on her feelings about capital punishment and other issues, and her unwavering voice presents even the most gruesome details rationally

A Rose For Her Grave

Been some time since I have read a book by Ann Rule and there is no doubt she still holds the high posistion of one of the best, if not the best of true crime writers. Rule has an incredible ability to write in an easy to read style without losing anything of the story. Highly recommend all of Rule's books to any true crime fan.

A Rose for Her Grave

I loved this book! Women need to read this book and learn not to fall for guys so fast no matter how charming they can be. But I understand how some women are when they want to belong to someone who says they will take care of them. I feel sorry for the ones that aren't so fortunate to be with someone who deeply cares for them.
