Great book on Brudos!

This one took me by surprise because I thought I read most of Ann Rule's books but this is one of her best and from what I gather one of her earlier books. It is an in depth book on Brudos, his crimes, mentality as well as family life. Interesting all the way through with a great narrator. Definitely worth a credit if you are into True Crime.

Gripping, brilliant, loved it, Bravo!

Stranger Beside Me will always be my favorite AR book that is a given but Lust Killer is a close second and I have read many of the late master’s brilliant texts. Oh how I miss her.

Normally it takes a chapter or two to get me engrossed but WHAM I was invested from the first five minutes. This is, sadly a very gruesome true accounting of evil so be aware. However AR knows how to lay out the facts in palatable form. I was on the edge of my seat at times. Callie Beaulieu gives a brilliant performance thus enhancing and enriching this book.

Would be more enjoyable if narrated better

I enjoyed the story itself, however, I was disappointed with the narrating. As someone who lives in Oregon, it was a bit distracting to hear Willamette mispronounced several times. Also, Chapter 24 was filled with several basic words mispronunced over and over.

Ann Rule never failed to take you right into the heart of the crime and investigation. This is no exception.
Amazing writer

The narrator can't pronounce simple words

she pronounces, "Willamette" incorrectly, which might be understandable, but she pronounced "macabre," "petitioner," and a few other words wrong. drove my husband and I up a wall.

Ann Rule Rules

Great true crime is what you get with this book. It is a story from the past but it doesn't seem dated.

Great story but narration is left wanting

The narration was very mechanical or robotic at times. The sorry was fascinating and we'll written.

I feel like I'm listening to Siri

Would you try another book from Ann Rule and Andy Stack and/or Callie Beaulieu?

Yes, I love Ann Rule and find her books to be informative but not difficult to read.

Would you be willing to try another one of Callie Beaulieu’s performances?

No. She literally sounds like Siri and sometimes I really think I am listening.... to Siri. I'm not sure if it's the mixture of her voice and also the mixing but sometimes her words sound like the disjointed words of Siri. It's very distracting and terrible. It really detracts from the book.
