Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Not up to par for this author"

    The stories in this book are from the 1970's, the author wrote them but did not publish them until recently. Very slow & loaded with unimportant details. The narrator voices the individual characters very well. Unfortunately, I've listened to two other books in this series, her voice has become repetitive. Overall I would not recommend this Ann Rule Book, not nearly as good as her other novels.

    Story
    "Not my favorite, but still likeable"
    What did you love best about A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases?

    Ann Rule always writes awesome books, and I love her True Crime Files books.


    Would you recommend A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to my friends who aren't put off by graphic details. However, the first story about Morris Blankenbaker was a little long.


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    Well, heres the thing. I could have used a different narrartor. Here characterization of the male players in the book was off-putting, and because most of the players in this book were male, it was slightly annoying.

    "Terrible app"

    This was the most useless app I've ever used. It won't play and continues to load. Definitely not keeping the subscription 👎🏼

    Story
    "Didn't Like This One- Long and Boring"

    While I like Ann Rule this one is a dud.

    The first story is so long and frankly, not very interesting.

    I don't recommend this. Not nearly as good as her others.

    Story
    "Hated the main story, but the others are good"

    The main case was boring. It was nothing special, none of the characters were particularly interesting nor were there twists and turns in the plot. I think the only reason Rule chose the boring case to be the main one was that a victim's relative asked her to write the story. I own quite a few Ann Rule titles on Audible and this is the first one that I've had some buyer's remorse about.

    However, I did find the other (shorter) cases in the book to be really interesting. Rule should have chosen one of them to be the main story.

    "Never disappointed"

    Ann Rule never disappoints in her true crime literary. I was vague familiar with her narrative of A fever in the Heart and was pleased to have purchased it at such a great price. Would highly recommend.
