The Stranger Beside Me

The Stranger Beside Me - Ann Rule This was the first true crime book I've ever read. I really enjoyed the first 3/4 of it: it had a great pace, envoked just the right amount of shock and fear. The last 1/4 of the book I found myself losing interest as the author began rambling, the characters became harder to keep track of (due to the shear volume), and the period of time between his death sentance and his execution could have been expanded upon. All in all, it was a unique book given the fact that the author, Ann Rule, was a close friend of Ted Bundy as well as a former police woman and reporter, and had the ability to see both sides of the coin.
