A ship's pilot legendary for guiding mammoth freighters through the narrows of Puget Sound, Rolf Neslund was a proud Norwegian, a ladies' man, and a beloved resident of Washington State's idyllic Lopez Island. Virtually indestructible even into his golden years, he made electrifying headlines more than once: after a ship he was helming crashed into the soaring West Seattle Bridge, causing millions in damages; and following his inexplicable disappearance at age 80. Was he a suicide, a man broken by one costly misstep? Had he run off with a lifelong love? Or did a trail of gruesome evidence lead to the home Rolf shared with his wife, Ruth? On an island where everyone thought they knew their neighbors, the veneer of the Neslunds' marriage masked a convoluted case that took many years to solve. And, indeed, some still believe that the old sea captain will come home one day. "The Sea Captain" is a classic tale as blood chilling as murder itself. Along with six other equally riveting, detailed accounts of destruction and murder committed without conscience or regret, Ann Rule takes listeners into frightening places they never could have imagined in No Regrets.

I really enjoyed this book. Unlike the others, this book doesn't ramble on and on. Some of the others I would fast forward just to get through it. The cases are interesting as well. It had a ray of different types of cases. I do recommend this book to those who love Ann Rule.
Strange journies into the human mind scare and enlighten me. I can't wait to jump into more of her books. We may never fully understand why these monsters do what they do, but we can learn some interesting things about them and hopefully how to spot them out and protect ourselves from a potential psychopath.
