Acclaimed literary biographer Joanne Drayton intersperses the story of Anne's life with an examination of her writing, drawing parallels between Anne's own experiences and her characters and storylines. Anne's books deal with miscarriages of justice, family secrets exposed, punishment, redemption, and forgiveness, themes made all the more poignant in light of her past. Anne has sold 25 million books worldwide and published in 15 different languages, yet she will now forever be known as a murderer who became a writer of murder stories. Drayton was been given unparalleled access to Anne, her friends, relatives, colleagues, and archives to complete the book. The result is a compelling listen which provides an understanding of the girl Anne was, the adult she became, her compulsion to write, and her view of the world.

The Search for Anne Perry
What disappointed you about The Search for Anne Perry?
The narrative was scattered with little continuity. It jumped from topic to topic without connection the information from before with the information being presented.
Has The Search for Anne Perry turned you off from other books in this genre?
Not a all. I am interested in biographies of writers.
What didn’t you like about Susannah Tyrrell’s performance?
The narrator must have been reading from a teleprompter, very flat monotone. Would not recommend this book to anyone even though I am an Anne Perry fan and would be interested to know her back story.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was disappointed because I expected to learn about Anne's childhood, the trial, and the teen years.
Any additional comments?
I will look into other sources for the information that I expected from this book.

No real answers.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I couldn't finish it. To much info of her books and her after prison, but not much about the crime.
What could Joanne Drayton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
It should be shorter and more about the crime.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
What character would you cut from The Search for Anne Perry?
I couldn't read far enough to know.
