Meet the Author

Ann  Rule

Ann Rule has drawn on her experience as a former policewoman to become one of America’s top true-crime writers. The author of over 1,000 articles and numerous books, she has lectured widely to law-enforcement schools and agencies. She has also serves as a consultant to the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (VI-CAP), which is used to track and apprehend violent criminals. Her bestselling books, Lust Killer, The Want-Ad Killer, The I-5 Killer, and Small Sacrifices, are available in Signet editions.

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.

    Chilling True Tale of a Heinous Killer

    I have always found myself fascinated by Ann Rule's stories. She writes smoothly of true crime, and allows reader to truly picture the story within our minds. "Lust Killer" tells of Jerome Brudos the lust killer, who randomly picked his victims, and then sadistically murdered them. While the story saddens me for the victims sake, Ann Rule knows how to tell the story. A+ for Lust Killer.

    Scary

    I have read all of Ann Rule's books except for the last two. I could not put this book down. I found this story to be about a very sick individual. This book actually scared me, which her books usually do not. So, if you read this book be prepared. I highly recommend.

    " Lust Killer...what a nerve racking story of horror and lust?"

    I found this book very disturbing and yet very absorbing! I just couldn't stop reading...I can't stop flipping the pages after pages.This one is one nerve racking story of unimaginable horror. The main character Jerry Brodus is totally a monster. With his crime planned meticolously and sickly disturding gore, it makes you wonder was he born with soul or just plainly evil? Ann Rule did a fantastic writing on this one, by far the most horrific book of a true-crime I've read.She is the best TRUE-CRIME AUTHOR that I truly believe deserving of 10 stars rating next to her name.This book makes my spine trembling with my every hairs of my body all standing at the same time. I am now a number one fan of Ann's Rule writings. I recommend this to the public who loves to read a TRUE-CRIME stories/novel.You will be amazed on how Ann Rule's transcribed her talent in writing

    higher rating if you're from Pacific Northwest

    This is an early work of Ann Rule; published under pseudonym. Didn't flow as well as her later books. Very interesting, though, to people in Pacific NW, especially Salem OR.

    Ehh,,

    I love reading Ann Rule's books. She is an amazing author and reading this book somewhat dissapointed me. I read Lust Killer after i read Ann Rule's book, Small Sacrifices. Small Sacrifices literally made me cry because of the horrific detail in the book. I took on Lust Killer with high intentions and it didn't really meet them. Lust Killer was still a good book, but Rule kind of let me down.

    Disappointing True Crime

    Being an Ann Rule fan, I found this to be her weakest book. While short and a quick read, it doesn't come across as being the great Ann Rule book that I've come to expect with each release. The facts are there and some background also, but it seems thrown together to satisfy a publisher's deadline.
