    From true crime legend Ann Rules comes this riveting story of a young woman whose life ended too soon - and a determined mother’s crusade to clear her daughter’s name. Barb Thompson never for one moment believed her daughter committed suicide.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It should not have been written. Ann Rule really disappoints all the way around. From the story, there is no resolution. I suspect that this book was written due to the friendship between author and victims mother. I do believe she was murdered but Ronda was let down in the very beginning by a blotched investigation/inquest/police/coroner/etc. It leaves you feeling empty not knowing and we never will.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Eh.


    Did Barbara Caruso do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No not at all.


    Was In the Still of the Night worth the listening time?

    No I am trying to finish out of respect for Ronda.


    Any additional comments?

    Ann Rule is the queen of true crime. Audible should offer MANY of her other wonderful books.

    Jerry Harris was a self-made California millionaire who, at age forty-four, had it all: booming businesses, yachts, a mansion, a beautiful wife, and a voice to rival Elvis. No one who knew this well-liked, generous man could make sense of his sudden disappearance one autumn night. On a final phone call to his brother from his Mercedes, Jerry breathed a muffled oath - then the line went dead. For Jerry's wife, Susan, it was just the beginning of an unwavering, eight-year search for the truth behind her husband's vanishing.

    Would you try another book from Ann Rule and/or Laural Merlington?

    Yes they are both my favorites author and narrator.


    What three words best describe Laural Merlington’s voice?

    Wonderful, Soothing, Talented


    Any additional comments?

    I can appreciate Ann Rule writing about cases back in the early days. Book 3 and 4 just don't seem on-point. Volumes 1 and 2 were good but she lost it there for a little bit but came back with a vengeance in later volumes. She must of found her niche. Ann Rule is the queen of her genre.

    What did you like best about And Never Let Her Go? What did you like least?

    Sadly an Abridged version as much information is missing. Ann Rule lacked in her ability as she does so wonderfully to connect you to the victim.


    If you’ve listened to books by Ann Rule before, how does this one compare?

    First time Ann Rule ever disappointed.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I have heard this narrator do better work.


    Do you think And Never Let Her Go needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The unabridged version needs to be offered.


    Any additional comments?

    Save your money and either pass or read the entire book. I want my credit back!
