Horrific true crime story told by Ann Rule- finally available in digital form. I had read this years ago and had forgotten the details, so, it was like reading a new book .  CHILLING!

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.

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.

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

I'm very curious to know why the killer's mother didn't want him when she realized she was having a second son. I mean, the author doesn't really say why in this novel, but it's clear that the mother had a deep and abiding hatred for the killer from the moment of his birth, and that's never been explained. Clearly, that had a lot to do with his development as a child, although it by no means condones what he did. Very intriguing crime story, and one that shows just how important parents are in the lives of their children.

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.

This is THE worst books i have ever read. I really don't recommend it.

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.

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.
