Publisher's Summary

Perhaps America's bestselling true-crime writer, Ann Rule, asks can the female really be deadlier than the male? Liysa and Chris Northon seemed the epitome of idyllic lovers when they married on a moonlit beach in Hawaii. Their friends admired the romantic couple: Chris, tall, athletic, handsome, a pilot for Hawaiian Airlines; and Liysa, attractive, seductive, with a tanned, perfect body. Their son, Bjorn, looked just like his dad, and they were raising Liysa's son by a previous marriage.
But it wasn't long before Chris saw a side of Liysa that he hadn't glimpsed before. Nothing was quite enough for her: she wanted more money, more property, and she was obsessed with becoming a famous Hollywood screenwriter. The marriage seemed to be unraveling, but Chris struggled to hold it together. Until one sunny morning in October 2000, he lay dead in a sleeping bag, while his wife drove four hours to a friend's house. Sobbing inconsolably, she appeared to have been beaten. Questions arose that made Oregon State detectives suspicious.
An audiobook that leads the listener from Hawaii to the Northwest to Hollywood, Heart Full of Lies will keep you enthralled to the very last sentence.

One of Ann Rule's Best

I have enjoyed many of Ann Rule's books and this one is another winner. The story is weaved so intricately that I spent the whole book trying to guess what the next turn would be. And she has an uncanny ability to keep juggling the many characters so that the listener does not lose track but the story has the feeling of the complexity of the principal character's life. I could not turn my MP3 off.
