Lots of characters, lots of action... but there seemed to be so many loose ends at the conclusion. I felt cheated by a weak ending that did not come full circle. Very disappointing.

A Fever in the Heart dissects an explosive triangle that led to obsession and murder in a small town in the northwest of America. Ann Rule reveals the story of an alluring wife and the two men desperate for her love; a story with a bizarre and deadly twist that no one could have suspected. In this and several other riveting true-crime cases from her personal files, Ann Rule masterfully probes the delusions of the criminal mind, the fateful circumstances and the unrelenting investigative forces at work in the aftermath of murder.

Ok. Interesting for sure. But first case (the foundation of this book) was very long winded. I know this was her first case so she wanted to be precise but it was about 3 hours too long in audio. I found myself skimming through hat was said because Of redundancies. Merlington was a good reader except I found her “male” voice annoying. I know she was trying to deepen her voice to recreate a masculine deep tone but it only grated on my nerves. I just wish she would have spoke in her normal pitch. I would have got the gist of it without cringing. Still a worthwhile audio book. I learned about cases I was not aware of before
