But I Trusted You and Other True Cases: Ann Rule's Crime Files, Book 14

The most fatal mistake? Trust. It's the foundation of any enduring relationship between friends, lovers, spouses, and families. But when trust is placed in those who are not what they seem, the results can be deadly. Ann Rule, who famously chronicled her own shocking experience of unknowingly befriending a sociopath in The Stranger Beside Me, offers a riveting, all-new collection from her true-crime files, with the lethally shattered bonds of trust at the core of each blood-soaked account.

Publisher's Summary

The most fatal mistake? Trust. It's the foundation of any enduring relationship between friends, lovers, spouses, and families. But when trust is placed in those who are not what they seem, the results can be deadly. Ann Rule, who famously chronicled her own shocking experience of unknowingly befriending a sociopath in The Stranger Beside Me, offers a riveting, all-new collection from her true-crime files, with the lethally shattered bonds of trust at the core of each blood-soaked account. Whether driven to extreme violence by greed or jealousy, passion or rage, these calculating sociopaths targeted those closest to them - unwitting victims whose last disbelieving words could well have been "but I trusted you...."

Headlining this anthology is the case of middle-school counselor Chuck Leonard, found shot to death outside his Washington State home on an icy February morning. A complicated mix of family man and wild man, Chuck played hard and loved many...but who crossed the line by murdering him in cold blood? And why? The revelation is as stunning as the shattering crime itself, powerfully illuminating how those we think we know can ingeniously hide their destructive and homicidal designs. Along with other shattering cases, immaculately detailed and sharply analyzed by America's number-one true-crime writer, this 14th Crime Files volume is essential listening for getting inside the mind of the hidden killers among us.

    "Time for a new "Rule"?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    An author by another name. Ann Rule has grown redundant and there seems to be over exaggerated need to explain the characters looks over story line.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ann Rule again?

    I hope I can resist any impulse too purchase her books in the future, she has too many annoying qualities in her writing; one being repetitive droning introductions.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Laural Merlington?

    Yes, I can stand the narrator.


    What character would you cut from But I Trusted You and Other True Cases?

    I would not have authorized this book for print, and I could not begin too character cut.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the spectrum of writing needs to broaden week after week we see James Patterson, Stephen King, or Nora Roberts role out books like mere journal entries. I am surprised that this continues, but Ann Rule should retire in my humble opinion.

    "I love Ann Rule, but this just didn't do it for me"

    I'm relatively new to audio books, and while I've found most of the books I've listened to enjoyable, this one just didn't do it for me. I'm actually a very big Ann Rule fan and have read quite a few of her books. Something about the narration just made it feel like the book drug on and on and I found my mind wandering and was really unable to focus on the book.
