I have read all of Ann Rule's true crime book over the years. Was a big fan . But here last couple of true crime were not intriguing nor kept my interested. They were not as well written as her previous other stories. I will think about purchasing any more as A Fever in The Heart, was a waste of my money.

A Fever in the Heart is a very sad story. My heart really went out to Morris' mother. In my opinion Jerilee's behavior set a tragic chain reaction in motion.

Ann Rule does it again. I love true crime and have read several authors. Ann in the queen of true crime. The stories come alive in all her books and this one is no exception. She puts you right in the middle of all the character's lives so you know the perpetrator's motives as well as the victim. Very interesting stories.

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.

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.

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.
