New Edition. The gripping story of one of the the most fascinating cold cases of the 20th century - Was eight-year-old Ann Marie Burr serial killer Ted Bundy's first victim? She disappeared from their Tacoma, Washington neighborhood early on a summer morning in 1961. Her body was never found, there were no clues, no ransom demand and no arrest. Was Bundy telling the truth when he told a hypothetical story about killing Ann and dumping her into a muddy pit? With new information about Ted Bundy's childhood, interviews with those who knew him best, and the memories of the Burr family, "Ted and Ann - The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy," has been called "an astonishing achievement" (Gregg Olsen) and "fascinating" (Ann Rule). This is no ordinary true crime book and belongs on a shelf with the non-fiction works of Erik Larson, Jon Krakauer, David Grann, and Simon Baatz.

This book is a poorly written, poorly edited "hot mess," rife with rumor, innuendo and conjecture. The only "facts" in the book are those gleaned from other Ted Bundy books. The author engages in endless trash talking about the mother of the victim, the father of the victim, the extended family of the victim, the family priest, Ted Bundy's family, the neighbors . . . on and on and on. Most disturbing is her trash talking of the victim herself, an eight-year-old CHILD, at one point describing her as "very sexual." I found this characterization, attributed to one of a myriad of possible suspects in the kidnapping of Ann Marie Burr, wholly unnecessary; and it was not the only reference to the "shortcomings" in the personality of a mere child. Overall, this book is akin to reading a bad term paper by a gossipy teenager.
