I have read all of Ann Rule's books and this has to be the worst. I have enjoyed all of her books in the past, however, this is one that I can not recommend to others. I think she was just looking for stories to fill the pages of the book. Yes, save your money.

No Regrets is excellent reading material. Much detail on all persons involved in the case of finding out what happened to the Captain. The persistance of all involved, from suspect to detectives, makes this a page turner. You will not be disappointed.

I have read many of her books, but have found this last one not up to her usual standards. The characters are not really people that I cared about and there were many inconsistencies in the story. It seemed that Ms. Rule needed to get another book in the pipeline and this was it. The first story titled 'The Sea Captain' was the longest and didn't hold my attention. The other ones were shorter and some were better than others. None of them had the date/ year of when the crime happened and that bothered me a lot. Seemed like she just found some older crime files to use as filler in the book. I hope that her next one holds my interest. My regret was that I bought the book instead of borrowing it from the library.

Anyone who enjoys true crime stories will enjoy this book. Mrs. Rule tells the story of not just the side of the one who has done the crime but more important the victims side of the crime and their families who lived through the tragedy. I highly recommend all of her books,you won't put them down.

Very poor. It was as if she pulled a few stories out of her file to write a quick book. Not up to her standards, i would not recommend it.

I agree with the other two posters that this book seemed thrown together to satisfy her publisher's needs, not to shed light on anything that anyone would care about. More than any of her other books, I had the sense with this one that I was rereading some of her True Detective stories from the sixties, except without the bite. Zzzzz...Ann, normally you do 'rule' but not this time.

While I liked this book I found it less compelling than Ann Rule's previous works, Her compassion for the victims does shine through though.

Ann Rule brings back to life many compelling yet, heartbreaking stories. It's hard to imagine how cold and calculated some people can be. But, however hard it is to imagine, these cases are all too real. From a 65 year old woman to is suspected to be a heinous killer, to a kidnapping that no one knows what will happen, Ann Rule delivers. All of her books are well written and researched. What makes them better is that she has sat at these trials and done hours of interviews with people involved in the cases. That makes her work even better. As with all her books, I recommend this one as well.

I am all for true crime stories being told. But do you all realize that this book has pictures of a minor's crime scene? (And btw, the victim was 15 and not 16.) I haven't read the book, and I won't. I can't give it a rank lower than one star. Those pictures should never be allowed to be published, let alone be allowed to be in public libraries, etc. There is nothing wrong with the telling of true crimes, but exploiting the victims in that way is just wrong, especially when they are minors. The families deserve better than that, whether the pictures are a matter of public record or not! I have read that she tried to contact the family, but I don't believe she tried hard enough.

I found this book very well written. Ann Rule lets the reader into the mind and motivation of murderer. Her book is more about the why and result of crime than description of the gore.

I loved this book! The tension and horror of the first story built relentlessly throughout. And before the horror starts, the author lets us really get to know the victim. The other stories are great too - appalling actually as you keep in mind they're REAL, not stories. Great read.

Ann Rule's well-researched and effortlessly narrated tales of true crime are always compelling. 'No Regrets' is the latest (2006) in her collection of true crime short stories, though one of them may be considered book length. I especially love these short story collections because any one of them makes a thoroughly absorbing interlude that can easily be fit into one's day -- or tucked away and saved for a rainy day. I've read all of Ms. Rule's books and have yet to put one down from boredom. She hooks you right away and then carefully spins out her story. I recommend this and any other Ann Rule book or collection of crime stories to anyone who likes to be well entertained.

I liked this book because (in the main story) the author gave so much background about the victim, his very interesting life, and the setting where the crime took place - as well as detail about the crime and the investigation. The short stories were shocking and heartbreaking, but told with much sensitivity towards the victims and with analysis of the psychology of the various situations. Once you start this book, it's hard to put it down.

A very good read. This is one book I couldn't put down! Ann is at her very best. The Sea Captain was spellbounding. The bonus stories, at the end of the book, I found fasinating. No Regrets in buying this book!

This book was very well written and obviously Ms. Rule put a lot of time into researching the stories. I would highly recommend this book to any fan of true crime stories, as well as any of the other books written by the very talented Ms. Rule.

ANN NEVER DISAPOINTS ME! I THINK I HAVE READ EVERYONE OF HER BOOKS. I ALWAYS GET MORE THAN MY MONEY'S WORTH. 'NO REGRETS' IS A BOOK TO CURL UP WITH. RUTH MEYERS THOUGHT SHE COULD GET AWAY WITH MURDER, SHE WAS SO SURE OF HERSELF THAT SHE TOLD SEVERAL PEOPLE. THE KICKER IS THAT SHE ALMOST DID. THE SEA CAPTAIN WILL HOLD YOUR INTEREST TILL THE VERY END. AS A TRUE CRIME WRITER ANN RULE IS TOP OF THE LINE.

Ann Rule only enhances her reputation as the world's best true crime writer with her latest book, No Regrets. No other writer, true crime or otherwise, connects with her readers and draws us into the lives of the people she writes about like Ann. Her compassion shines through, as always, with each word she writes. We care because she cares. My only regret is that Ann can't write faster.
