Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From the premier writer of true crime comes A Fever in the Heart and Other True Cases, the third volume in Ann Rule's Crime Files series. Here, she collects four cases that "subconsciously or inadvertently... share a common theme: personal betrayal. Since I am a great believer in the premise that we do nothing accidentally, it must be the right time to contemplate homicides that occur because the victim or victims have been betrayed by someone they have come to trust." Like her bestselling Dead by Sunset, A Fever in the Heart is scheduled to be made into an NBC-TV miniseries currently scheduled to air in May 1997. (Pocket, $6.99, 480p, ISBN 0-671-79355-1)
Library Journal
Crime writer Rule has produced another gripping compilation of true-crime stories, all set in Washington State in the 1970s. Her themes are of personal betrayal and sexual predators. The title story tells of an obsession fueled by jealousy and lust, ultimately leading to death and the ruination of many lives. After his wife left him, beloved high school coach Gabby Moore became obsessed with the wife of a former student and friend, Morris Blankenbaker. Morris's wife, Jerilee, began a relationship with Gabby that deteriorated as the alcoholic Gabby's behavior became increasingly erratic. She returned to Morris, who was soon found murdered, but Gabby, the most likely suspect, had an airtight alibi. Other stories also tell tales of obsession, lust, murder, secret lives and false identities, and sexual depravity. A welcome addition to true-crime collections; highly recommended.-Sandra K. Lindheimer, Middlesex Law Lib., Cambridge, Mass.

Meet the Author

Ann  Rule

Ann Rule is a former Seattle policewoman and the author of more than two dozen New York Times bestsellers. She is a certified instructor for police training seminars and lectures frequently to law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and forensic science organizations, including the FBI. For more than two decades, she has been a powerful advocate for victims of violent crime. A graduate of the University of Washington, she holds a Ph.D. in Humane Letters from Willamette University. She lives near Seattle and can be contacted through her website AnnRules.com.

Biography

Ann Rule has always had an insatiable interest in why people do the things they do. From devouring true crime books when she was a girl to pursuing a career in law enforcement as a Seattle policewoman, to achieving blockbuster success as a true crime author, Rule has dedicated her life to uncovering the dark motivations inside the minds of the criminals who live among us.

The majority of Rule's books have hit the New York Times bestseller list, including six Crime Files series volumes: A Rage to Kill, In the Name of Love, the #1 bestseller A Fever in the Heart, You Belong to Me, A Rose for Her Grave, and The End of the Dream.

...And Never Let Her Go is her chilling account of the nationally renowned case of wife killer Thomas Capano; Bitter Harvest covers the case of Debora Green, a physician and mother driven to murder; the #1 bestseller If You Really Loved Me tells the true story of a millionaire's murderous alter ego; Everything She Ever Wanted is the story of a sociopathic Georgia socialite and her fatal attractions; Small Sacrifices is Rule's heartbreaking account of a woman who slaughtered her three young children. Perhaps her best-known and most compelling work, The Stranger Beside Me, is the fascinating tale of Rule's growing terror as she realized her friend and coworker, Ted Bundy, was a serial killer. Finally, the #1 New York Times bestseller Dead by Sunset tells the story of a charismatic killer and the women who loved him.

Generous and civic-minded when it comes to sharing her expertise and insights, Rule has testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee and often speaks to law enforcement agencies, including the FBI Academy. She also served on the U.S. Justice Department task force that set up VI-CAP -- the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program now in use at the FBI to trace and apprehend serial killers.

Good To Know

Rule's early jobs included being a caseworker for the Washington State Department of Public Assistance and a police officer.

Rule's interest in criminology seems to run in the family: Her grandfather and an uncle were sheriffs, another uncle was a medical examiner, and her cousin was a district attorney.

    Another Hit for Rule

    Ann Rule really knows how to write true crime. These stories always seem to make readers cringe, and of course, the same goes for this novel. The only thing that I didnt like was how long the first case was. It seemed very drawn out however, it was interesting. i'm not sure why she put so much time with this case, and so little with the others. But, the novel is good, and it is a must read for fans of the author, and the true crime genre.

    admirable work

    She has the talent to balance out the investigative, criminalist aspect of a crime and at the same time she is able to describe the people involved to the core that it makes our heart go out to these people who are no more, who have been dead for more than two decades and for us to want to support and sympathise with the families who had lost the people they cherished to deaths that just should never have happened.

    Good Ann Rule book

    This is a good book by Ann Rule. It gets a little drawn out at the end during the trial - but otherwise it is an interesting story with interesting characters. It's a sad, but interesting story of a love triangle between two talented highschool sweethearts and the school's wrestling coach who later has a midlife crisis and seduces the highschool guy's wife. Tells about the sad result of being swayed by emotions instead of reality.
