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.
The reader managed to irritate me (listen to the sample before purchasing, I know I should have). The stories manage somehow to be uninteresting.
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.
