Ann Rule uses her characteristic insight and exclusive access to the facts to create a gripping portrait of that rarity in crime: a female sociopath.

"Rule's tautly written study of this diabolical woman constantly fascinates." (Library Journal)
"Betty Buckley uses a gentle Southern accent for a quiet, but compelling delivery." (AudioFile)
This book was fine. But not one of Ms. Rules best. Audible only offers Anne Rules books in the abridged format. So, maybe that is why I was left feeling like the story was wanting.
I know it's and abridged version, but I've read the hardcopy and they cut out some of the most interesting things about the case. I can't complain too much, I did know I was getting an abridged version, but yikes, if other abridged books are like this, I'm amazed anyone bothers.
The narrator and I think the actual recording itself are terrible. I can't hear her well at all, no matter how much I turn up the volume, use headphones, etc. Its a very poor recording. The narrator doesn't do anything to help, she's bland and forgettable. Really, its worth just reading the actual book rather than listening to this.
This is a gripping, fast moving story about a female psychopath following her nature by executing elaborate plots to gain material advantages. The story pulls you along down the labyrinth of a psychopathic mind. Deceptions, their playing out over time and their devastating effects are presented in a story that you can't stop reading.
My name is Brandy, I just can't get enough of true crime so that's what I read almost exclusively.
As always Ann delivers... She managed to tell a story in great detail in a small amount of time! The narrator was perfect!
"Everything She Ever Wanted"
Fascinating, well written book. Expertly narrated by Betty Buckley.
