Publisher's Summary

The officer responding to a 911 call at one of Houston's hippest high-rises expected the worst. After all, domestic violence situations can be unpredictable. But nothing could've prepared him for what he found: a beautiful woman drenched in blood, an older man lying dead on the floor, and a cobalt blue suede stiletto with tufts of white hair stuck to its five-and-a-half-inch heel.

With her stunning looks, magnetic personality, and erratic behavior, Ana Trujillo had a notorious reputation on the downtown Houston scene. She spoke often of occult powers, though few knew how deeply she believed such boasts. Stefan Andersson was a gentle soul, a Swedish transplant with a good career and trusted friends, who was desperate to find someone special. Theirs is a story of obsession, madness, and tragedy. Because once Stefan fell head over heels for Ana, he was under her control - and he didn't have a chance in hell.

    "Drawn out"

    This was a single crime. I like a lot of detail, but the detail here added little or nothing to the story.

    I found nothing wrong with the narrattion, but then I'm not from Texas! ;)

    Story
    "Well written"

    This book does a great job of explaining the life and personalities of the people in the book. It's a life story not just a regurgitation of a court case. Very well written and first book I have read/listened to by this author. I will look for more by her now.

    Narrator did a great job and good accents so you knew who was speaking without constant he said she said after each dialogue. Really enjoyed the listen thanks to the narrator.

    Story
    "one of the best ever."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Possessed to be better than the print version?

    I do not know


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The enormous detail and utter clarity of the narrator. The voice of the author gave me a sense of confidence in a story that was so troublesome and even unbelievable, The writing talent for me was so obviously above most that I would put her on the level and even a cut above Ann Rule. I am going to read more of her books.


    What about Heather Auden’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I had a reaction of extreme sadness and longing for a life that will be no longer due to such tragic circumstances. I myself believe that Trujillo was a victim of drugs and cult psychology that gave her the sense of invincibility. She was quite sick and drunk with false ideas and machinations about her greatness, I do not think that she was mentally ill in the slightest. She let herself get sucked into a world where in she surrendered her real mind for that of a drug, alcohol and cult influenced maniac.

    Story
    "Fascinating true crime"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I live in Houston where this story was covered extensively, so I appreciated the authors' careful researching of the facts beyond the lurid headlines. I was satisfied that I had an answer to "How could this happen?", but relieved that she didn't try to psychoanalyze the characters or look for a "deeper message". I found myself very interested in the story and finished it in about 2 days.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kathryn Casey before, how does this one compare?

    1st one. Probably won't read any others, as it's very depressing to be immersed in these sordid tales.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Auden’s performances?

    This was a downside- the Spanish accent was terrible and distracting, especially in Texas where Spanish is spoken everywhere.


    Did Possessed inspire you to do anything?

    No- both of the characters were fairly "damaged", so there is no fear that this could happen to me or anyone I know!

    "Great writer"

    It is accurate, I am in the book. Ana was an interesting lady and I wish her well and hope she can get better. She was wrong in what she did, but she needs help.
