    Ann Rule was working on the biggest story of her career, tracking the trail of victims left by a brutal serial killer. Little did this future best-selling author know that the savage slayer she was hunting was the young man she counted among her closest friends. Everyone's picture of a natural winner, Ted Bundy was a bright, charming, and handsome man with a promising future as an attorney. But on January 24, 1989 Bundy was executed for the murders of three young women - and had confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five more women from coast to coast.

    They were best friends, four talented and charismatic young men who lived charmed lives among the evergreens of Washington state: Kevin, the artist; Steve, the sculptor; Scott, the nature lover and unabashed ladies' man; and Mark, the musician and poet. With their stunning good looks, whip-sharp minds, athletic bodies - and no lack of women who adored them - none of them seemed slated for disaster. But few knew the reality behind the leafy screen that surrounded Seven Cedars, Scott's woodland dream home....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The other reviews were spot on!. this is one boring case that she chose to write about. Good boy with good looks and no brain making idiotic decisions about his life. End of story. No murder or mystery.


    Has The End of the Dream: The Golden Boy Who Never Grew Up and Other True Cases turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    pick a more interesting case.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    waiting for more the entire time
