"A Rose for Her Grave" - the principal story of this collection - vividly recreates the cautionary tale of Randy Roth, a misogynistic sociopath from the Pacific Northwest whose rage was directed primarily at women and children. Addicted to his own greed, Roth exercised a powerful aura of control over his victims, using his ability to charm and boyish good looks to lower their defenses. By the time they saw the reality of the madness in his eyes, it was usually too late. This, along with five other chilling cases, bears the stamp of classic Ann Rule - informed, comprehensive, and eerily evocative of man's inhumanity to man.

These true crime cases written by Ann Rule, all of which I believe are newly told in this book, are well-written depictions of the havoc scum of the earth criminals impose upon innocent victims, their families and friends. Highly recommend.
The narrator, Laural Merlington, is a brilliant choice by Ann Rule to tell these stories in an authentic manner.
Only for the picture value. Most of her books do include pictures.
The way criminals always think they are smarter than anyone else.
She made the evil pop out in her voice.
Everytime the truth was revealed.
Never get enough of Ann Rule!!
The story is great, well researched, very detailed. It goes into a crime that I (being 40) vaguely remember. The reason for that is because it was originally published in 1993. There are many other more current true crime books. Buy one of those- the forensics will interest you more. Also, the actual paper version of this book is out of print on some sites.
Randy Roth was a horrible monster but his conviction was from 1991... Not sure why this is just now being released on Audible.
