Over the years I have read many Ann Rule books - some I have liked more than others. I think this one has been somehow lost in the shuffle. It is not as emotionally gripping as Small Sacrifices, but is super suspenseful. How did this happen? How could this happen? And how can justice come to pass?
This book seems to have been downplayed whenever anyone mentions Ann Rule, though I am not sure why. The hold that Brad Cunningham had over beautiful, successful - though obviously emotionally dependent - women is astounding. And yet....
Richard Ferone's narration of this was fantastic! I have read several of his novel narrations and have had a hard time with them, but he was pitch-perfect here.
If you like true crime with character study, this book is for you! Well, well worth the credit!
I found myself shaking my head in disbelief more often then not. It's a riveting story, sometimes a bit hard to listen to given the events taking place but well written.
At first, I wasn't sure I'd like the narrator but I grew to enjoy his delivery. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book.
Ann Rule is a thorough researcher who paints a detailed picture of this sociopath, how he ensnared trusting women and then made them virtual prisoners. I tore through the story in just a few days despite myself. The narrator was one of the best I've heard though his impressions of female voices were a bit cringe-worthy. That being said, I would highly recommend this one.
The book was long but very interesting. I wish the narrator would have learned how to correctly pronounce the names of the town's and other landmarks but otherwise, it is a good book.
Ann Rule is my favorite author of all. The book was easy to follow The reader did a great job. Looking forward to more Ann Rule books on Audible
Overall, this was quite a story and for the last several hours, I simply couldn't turn it off. This is a worthwhile and fascinating listen; the details of the many lives that intersect within this true story were so insane that I frequently found myself shaking my head in disbelief and bewilderment.
