I would recommend this if you are an Ann Rule fan

I was intrigued with the story and Ann Rule's writing, as usual, was great. But she usually ends her books with some kind of closure or verdict. I am a huge Ann Rule fan, but it left me a bit unsatisfied because we do not have an answer, verdict or closure in the end.

I am a big Ann Rule fan,and this book does not deliver. Her style,as usual is stellar,but I expect resolution by the end of the story she has told. There is not only no resolution,but it is also extremely frustrating, because we know Ronda Reynolds' murderer and we know that he or they are walking free. I for one,do not want to read another story like this from Ann Rule unless there is closure at the end. Ann,I still love your writing and your meticulous research,not only of the main characters,but of every nuance of the story; the backdrop where the story takes place,the individuals' backgrounds,etc.There is no one better at what you do.Please give us closure in the next book!

    Usual Good Writing by Ann Rule - Disappointed by Ending

    Ann Rule, as usual writes another very good true crime story. I was very surprised to find out by the end, that closure was not obtained fully by the mother. Very disappointing, but will continue to read Ann Rule, as long as her next novel has a wrap up.

    Worth Reading

    I have read all of Ann Rules books and did not like this one as much as any of the others. Just wasn't suspensful. I do understand why she wrote the book, so everyone will know Rhonda Reynolds story and I believe it needed to be told.
