Meet the Author

Ann  Rule

Ann Rule is the author of thirty New York Times bestsellers, all of them still in print. Her first bestseller was The Stranger Beside Me, about her personal relationship to infamous serial killer Ted Bundy. A former Seattle police officer, she knows the crime scene firsthand. For more than two decades, she has been a powerful advocate for victims of violent crime. She lives near Seattle. Visit her at AuthorAnnRule.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.

    wrong author

    If you are looking for the Ann Rule book Possession you won't find it in this download. When you open the ebook it says author unknown but on page 3 it reads plays by George Middleton. I know that it is a free book but it was very annoying to download it only to find it was not the correct book. It is several plays by Middleton not the novel by Ann Rule so I had to delete it. :(

    Couldn't put it down!

    I couldn't put the book down. The intensity of each character was fascinating. Joanne makes you hate her and yet understand her in some twisted way. It read like one of Ann Rules perfect non-fiction crime novels. . I recommend this book to all readers who enjoy crime stories.

    WOW

    This book was Ann Rule's first book and by far one of her best books ever written. I enjoyed the book alot. I love the way Ann Rule tells the story. I often look over my shoulder and wonder if anyone is there. Ann Rule describes everything in such great detail that you have a clear pictures of what is happening. Creepy, scary, suspense, all together. Outstanding. I recommend this book!

    Explosive Emotions

    I grew up in Washington State, so knowing the woods as well as I do, the travels and places were familiar, the events riviting, and the outcome emotionally explosive. Now when traveling the Cascades, I can feel the ghosts.

    Excellent

    This Ann Rule book is a novel only because none of the real names were used. So, this book is actually a true story. It is a very good book & I could not put it down. I would high recommend.

    her other books are much better

    I didn't care for this one--it seems like parts were left out so the jumps from one scenario to the next didn't follow properly. Her other books build up the facts better ( know this is fiction, but...)
