Publisher's Summary

"A Rose for Her Grave" - the principal story of this collection - vividly recreates the cautionary tale of Randy Roth, a misogynistic sociopath from the Pacific Northwest whose rage was directed primarily at women and children. Addicted to his own greed, Roth exercised a powerful aura of control over his victims, using his ability to charm and boyish good looks to lower their defences. By the time they saw the reality of the madness in his eyes, it was usually too late. This, along with five other chilling cases, bears the stamp of classic Ann Rule - informed, comprehensive, and eerily evocative of man's inhumanity to man.

The description of this book states it contains the title story plus five others. The title even says "...And Other True Cases...." Yet the additional stories are not included. Very disappointing! 👎😡

Poor narration but a good true crime story

I wish the Sample had been from the meat of the book, not just the beginning, because I would hopefully have known how much I didn't like Laural Merlignton's narration. She is, IMO, particularly bad at quoted voices - all her male characters sound somewhat constipated and all her female characters sound like 11 year old girls who are about to cry. I think it ruined what was otherwise a good retelling of an interesting true crime story.
