In the Name of Love: And Other True Cases | [Ann Rule]

In the Name of Love: And Other True Cases

Jerry Harris was a self-made California millionaire who, at age forty-four, had it all: booming businesses, yachts, a mansion, a beautiful wife, and a voice to rival Elvis. No one who knew this well-liked, generous man could make sense of his sudden disappearance one autumn night. On a final phone call to his brother from his Mercedes, Jerry breathed a muffled oath - then the line went dead. For Jerry's wife, Susan, it was just the beginning of an unwavering, eight-year search for the truth behind her husband's vanishing.

Publisher's Summary

Inside a circle of trusted friends...one was a killer.

Jerry Harris was a self-made California millionaire who, at age forty-four, had it all: booming businesses, yachts, a mansion, a beautiful wife, and a voice to rival Elvis. No one who knew this well-liked, generous man could make sense of his sudden disappearance one autumn night. On a final phone call to his brother from his Mercedes, Jerry breathed a muffled oath - then the line went dead. For Jerry's wife, Susan, it was just the beginning of an unwavering, eight-year search for the truth behind her husband's vanishing. Through exclusive access to an FBI agent inside the investigation, Ann Rule unmasks a man driven by malevolence and hidden jealousy to destroy Jerry Harris' magnificent business empire. She expertly profiles a criminal mind that stopped at nothing in a scheme of greed and violence. With the riveting power of a Greek tragedy, Rule reveals the dark underside of an all-American success story, and a wife's ultimate triumph of justice in the name of love. Including other unforgettable accounts of true crime, this is Ann Rule at her chilling best.

    "Don't Buy Twice!"

    "In the Name of Love: And Other True Cases" contains the very same story as "In the Name of Love," which does not also contain "And Other True Cases."

    When I searched My Library, I should have been directed to the shortened version I owned, and I was not.

    Therefore, I repurchased a full book with content I already owned but did receive a brief addition. Had I known, I certainly wouldn't have blown my money on this regurgitation.

    Audible.com and Ann Rule ought read pay attention to the cover page of republished written books. To the best of my knowledge, when a book is reprinted, in whole or in part, the front cover of the book says such.

    Why? So people like me don't get upset when we pay for the same book that's already on our bookshelves disguised under a different name. Take note, Audible.com and Ann Rule. This practice is deceptive and should be corrected immediately.

    The ONE star is my optimistic thinking that maybe Audible.com or Ann Rule will be curious as to why this reader is ticked off.

    Story
    "Not her best - but, nonetheless, she Rule's"

    The book length section of this title, "In The Name of Love", is an interesting case but Ms. Rule stretches it thin to make it a book length section of this collection. There are several chapters that could have been edited out...and should have been. This is the first time I've had this complaint about one of her collections, and I've read or listened to them all. Still, a sub par effort by this genre's acknowledged queen is still better than most other writers.

    The other cases in this collection are more interesting and the writing and editing much tighter.

    Laura Merlington does her usual excellent job of reading throughout...although I wish she would use a dictionary for correct pronunciation of words, although she only misses a few in this volume. Altogether, she is a good fit for Ms. Rule's prose.

    Is this Anne Rule's best collection? No. Is it worth the listen? Absolutely.

    Story
    "Don't waste your money!"
    Would you try another book from Ann Rule and/or Laural Merlington?

    Yes they are both my favorites author and narrator.


    What three words best describe Laural Merlington’s voice?

    Wonderful, Soothing, Talented


    Any additional comments?

    I can appreciate Ann Rule writing about cases back in the early days. Book 3 and 4 just don't seem on-point. Volumes 1 and 2 were good but she lost it there for a little bit but came back with a vengeance in later volumes. She must of found her niche. Ann Rule is the queen of her genre.
