Fatal Friends, Deadly Neighbors: And Other True Cases (Ann Rule's Crime Files Series #16) by Ann Rule, Laural Merlington

#1 New York Times bestselling author and queen of true crime Ann Rule’s sixteenth volume in her True Crime Files series, Deadly Neighbors delves into the unsolved case of a billionaire’s son mysteriously falling off a balcony to his death and more.

In July 2011, billionaire Jonah Shacknai’s Coronado, California, mansion was the setting for two horrifying deaths only days apart—his young son’s plunge from a balcony and his girlfriend’s ghastly hanging. What really happened? Baffling questions remain unanswered, as these cases were closed far too soon for hundreds of people; Rule looks at them now through the eyes of a relentless crime reporter. The second probe began in Utah when Susan Powell vanished in a 2009 blizzard. Her controlling husband, Josh, proved capable of a blind rage that was heartbreakingly fatal to his innocent small sons almost three years later in a tragedy that shocked America as the details unfolded. If anyone had detected the depth of depravity within Josh Powell, perhaps the family that loved and trusted him would have been saved. In these and seven other riveting cases, Ann Rule exposes the twisted truth behind the façades of Fatal Friends, Deadly Neighbors.

These doomed relationships are the focus of queen of true crime Ann Rule’s sixteenth all-new Crime Files collection. In these shattering inside views of both headlined and little-known homicides, Rule speaks for vulnerable victims who relied on the wrong people. She begins with two startling novella-length investigations.

After waiting and waiting for Anns new book to come out I was terribly disappointed in this one- all the rest I would give a 5 star to but not this one. I just think the stories were not covered very well and they all seemed to bore me. I wish there were pictures on the nook tablet like in her books so you can put a face to the people involved.

I loved the book. I found it very interesting and could not put it down. The people that have been giving Ann Rule bad reviews need to get over themselves. I almost did not buy this book because of the prior negative comments and I am glad I bought it anyways. I have always loved her books and I cannot wait until the next one comes out!

I've read all of Ann's books, and i truly enjoy reading all of her stories, shes the best in the business, but i waited so long for this book and was disappointed. The Susan Powell case was well done, and really all her stories are, but the Shacknai case really shouldnt have been in here, it was interesting but reading about a case that hasn't been solved (really, 2 cases, the son and girlfriend), in a true crime files book is disappointing. In a book where there is only a handful of stories i was disappointed to read an intriguing case with no resolution. I dont know, maybe it's just me. I love her books still though, and i will anxiously await her next.

I have been and will continue to be an avid fan of Ann Rule, but this is not one of her better works.

Eh, I have enjoyed Anne Rules previous books but this one just did nothing for me. There were too many unsolved cases in this book for my taste. Too bad, hopefully her next books will be better! C-

Typical Ann Rule: well-documented, well-written and exciting.

My least favorite of all Anne Rule books. To me they lacked depth and seemed rushed

I didn't care for this one as much as the preceding books. But, it was pretty good.

As usual Ann Rule delivers true crime at its best. She is, indeed, the Queen of True Crime writing.

Ann Rule is her usual factual self in this collection of cases. She never disappoints...the facts are presented and the reader sees the cases through the author's eyes. Easy to read and hard to put down!

Ann Rule outdid herself once again and wrote very detailed, very captivating true crime tales about innocent people losing their precious lives to some very very evil people. All of the stories have stayed with me and I could literally visualize myself in all of those surroundings. She's an incredible writer.
