    "If anything ever happens to me, promise me that you will see that there is an investigation...And find Ann Rule and ask her to write my story," Sheila Blackthorne Bellush told her sister after she divorced multimillionaire Allen Blackthorne. Now, in perhaps the first book ever written at a victim's request, America's best selling true-crime writer, Ann Rule, untangles a horrific web of lies that culminated in Sheila's savage murder more than 10 years after she left Blackthorne.

    Overall

    Though this one was short, it was an interesting read. Fascinating how Ann Rule was chosen by the victim before her death to be the one to tell her story. Most interesting of all is having a look at someone with a layer of cruelty in his personality I'm tempted to describe as diabolical, who I can only imagine, possessed blinding charm? To be able to coerce and manipulate so many seemingly intelligent people and continue to have his way for so long! Creepy. In spite of feeling so sorry for "Jamie," I have to admit to cringing in horror at the thought of how he meted out corporal punishment and was able to blame and abandon a child who was as surely a victim as he was. Sheila seemed to have a knack for attracting "heartless" and "violent" into her sphere... A pretty good quick read for people who enjoy true crime.

    Three children, running in the woods behind their school, stumble upon a partially buried female body, eyes and mouth glued shut. Close behind the children is their teacher, Anne Navarre, shocked by this discovery and heartbroken as she witnesses the end of their innocence. What she doesn't yet realize is that this will mark the end of innocence for an entire community, as the ties that bind families and friends are tested by secrets uncovered in the wake of a serial killer's escalating activity.

    Overall

    I loved this story, and was impressed by the narrator's ability to effectively and believably become each of its characters - drawing me in completely. I was fascinated by the way Tami Hoag included children in a story so drenched with details illustrating profound human depravity and unimaginable horror. I found myself getting attached to the characters, whether I loved or hated them, and couldn't get enough - of the dynamic between the main character and her father as well as her best friend, and especially of "Vince" the profiler. He had the ability to have complete mastery of a situation while maintaining a layer of heart wrenching vulnerability. Five stars from me - for imagination, style, rich personality, and especially for inspiring me to listen a second time. Excellent read for anyone who enjoys suspenseful murder mysteries that indulge the reader's curiosity about behavioral analysis.
