A Fever in the Heart dissects an explosive triangle that led to obsession and murder in a small town in the northwest of America. Ann Rule reveals the story of an alluring wife and the two men desperate for her love; a story with a bizarre and deadly twist that no one could have suspected. In this and several other riveting true-crime cases from her personal files, Ann Rule masterfully probes the delusions of the criminal mind, the fateful circumstances and the unrelenting investigative forces at work in the aftermath of murder.

Ann Rule always writes awesome books, and I love her True Crime Files books.
I would recommend this book to my friends who aren't put off by graphic details. However, the first story about Morris Blankenbaker was a little long.
Well, heres the thing. I could have used a different narrartor. Here characterization of the male players in the book was off-putting, and because most of the players in this book were male, it was slightly annoying.
Love a great book that stays with you long after you've finished it.
The stories in this book are from the 1970's, the author wrote them but did not publish them until recently. Very slow & loaded with unimportant details. The narrator voices the individual characters very well. Unfortunately, I've listened to two other books in this series, her voice has become repetitive. Overall I would not recommend this Ann Rule Book, not nearly as good as her other novels.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
I PREFER ONE CASE PER BOOK. PREFERABLE WITH FAMILY DYNAMICS. AND THE MOTIVE IS GREED, SEX, OR JEALOUSY. THE LAST CASE WAS NOT INTERESTING AT ALL.
CLEAR READING. BUT I HAVE BECOME SPOILED BY SOME READERS WHO ARE REALLY GREAT. OF COURSE THIS IS TRUE CRIME SO I GUESS IT WAS READ CLRRECTLY
YES. THERE SHOULD BE A NARATOR. NO STARS. LIKE SNAPPED OR DATELINE.
I WISH ANN RULE WOULD DO AND UNABRIDGED VERSION OF IF YOU REALLY LOVED ME.
interested in everything
The story (ies) were classic Ann Rule but I have to wonder how much prep the narrator did for this reading. Much to my surprise, she mispronounced words that shouldn't have been if she had read the material ahead if time. Such as "I read yesterday and today I read." It wasn't very often but enough to be irritating.
I've listened to this narrator before so I know she is capable of doing better. Listen at your own risk.
