Not up to par for this author

The stories in this book are from the 1970's, the author wrote them but did not publish them until recently. Very slow & loaded with unimportant details. The narrator voices the individual characters very well. Unfortunately, I've listened to two other books in this series, her voice has become repetitive. Overall I would not recommend this Ann Rule Book, not nearly as good as her other novels.

Not my favorite, but still likeable

What did you love best about A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases?

Ann Rule always writes awesome books, and I love her True Crime Files books.

Would you recommend A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book to my friends who aren't put off by graphic details. However, the first story about Morris Blankenbaker was a little long.

Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

Well, heres the thing. I could have used a different narrartor. Here characterization of the male players in the book was off-putting, and because most of the players in this book were male, it was slightly annoying.
