Overview

Ann Rule presents another collection of fascinating and disturbing true-crime stories—drawn from her real-life personal files—in this seventeenth volume in the #1 New York Times bestselling Crime Files series.

MOVING IN FOR THE KILL
In this all-new collection of investigative accounts from her private archives, “America’s best true-crime writer” (Kirkus Reviews) exposes the most frightening aspect of the murderous mind: the waiting game. Trusted family members or strangers, these cold-blooded killers select their unsuspecting prey, wait for the perfect moment to strike, then turn normality into homicidal mayhem in a matter of moments. Ann Rule will have you seeing the people and places around you with heightened caution as you read these shattering cases, including:

• New mothers murdered, their infants kidnapped, in an atrocious baby-selling scheme

• The man who kept his criminal past hidden from his wife—and his wife from his mistress—until he coldly disposed of one of them

• The beautiful daughter of a State Department official ran away from the privileged world she knew and hitched a ride with a man she didn’t . . . with fatal consequences

• For months, a vicious, rage-filled serial rapist eluded police and terrorized Seattle’s women—when would he strike next, and how far would his violence escalate?

• A criminal known for his Houdini-like escapes is serving time for murder in a botched robbery—now the convict is being served dinner in a civilian’s home, where he has one more trick up his sleeve

• A long-lost relative who came home to visit, leaving a bloody trail through Washington and Oregon; no one realized how dangerous he and his ladylove were—until it was far too late. . . .

With her ability to translate the most complex cases into storytelling “as dramatic and chilling as a bedroom window shattering at night” (The New York Times), Rule expertly analyzes the thoughts and deeds of the
sociopath, in this seventeenth essential Crime Files volume.

    I miss her stories

    I sure do miss her in depth murder books like Dead by Sunset, A Rose for her Grave, or Small Sacrifes

    Highly recommended!

    This is Ann Rule getting back to her earlier style of story-telling. This is well worth reading. Very good.

    Another Good Read by Ann Rule

    I spent several late nights reading this new set of stories.
    All were pretty interesting and kept me reading to the end.
    Ann Rule is definitely the Queen of True Crime. I like her books and stories because they are done so well without a lot of blood and gore telling which really isn't necessary because you still get the point.

    Frightening!!!

    Pure evil!!! This book will scare you! It is hard to believe there are such horrible people! It is like seeing a car accident - you just cannot look away. Like all Ann Rule books, this one is breath taking that such evil people are on this earth. Highly recommended for exposing these evil criminals. To the law enforcement official who got them an A+++++

    Don't bother.

    Terrible. Poorly written, poorly edited. Seemed like an effort to capitalize on the author's names and past successes without doing the necessary work. What a shame. After many years of buying and enjoying Ms. Rule's books, I'll never read another one. No stars.
