The officer responding to a 911 call at one of Houston's hippest high-rises expected the worst. After all, domestic violence situations can be unpredictable. But nothing could've prepared him for what he found: a beautiful woman drenched in blood, an older man lying dead on the floor, and a cobalt blue suede stiletto with tufts of white hair stuck to its five-and-a-half-inch heel.
With her stunning looks, magnetic personality, and erratic behavior, Ana Trujillo had a notorious reputation on the downtown Houston scene. She spoke often of occult powers, though few knew how deeply she believed such boasts. Stefan Andersson was a gentle soul, a Swedish transplant with a good career and trusted friends, who was desperate to find someone special. Theirs is a story of obsession, madness, and tragedy. Because once Stefan fell head over heels for Ana, he was under her control - and he didn't have a chance in hell.

one of the best ever.
I do not know
The enormous detail and utter clarity of the narrator. The voice of the author gave me a sense of confidence in a story that was so troublesome and even unbelievable, The writing talent for me was so obviously above most that I would put her on the level and even a cut above Ann Rule. I am going to read more of her books.
Yes, I had a reaction of extreme sadness and longing for a life that will be no longer due to such tragic circumstances. I myself believe that Trujillo was a victim of drugs and cult psychology that gave her the sense of invincibility. She was quite sick and drunk with false ideas and machinations about her greatness, I do not think that she was mentally ill in the slightest. She let herself get sucked into a world where in she surrendered her real mind for that of a drug, alcohol and cult influenced maniac.
Fascinating true crime
I live in Houston where this story was covered extensively, so I appreciated the authors' careful researching of the facts beyond the lurid headlines. I was satisfied that I had an answer to "How could this happen?", but relieved that she didn't try to psychoanalyze the characters or look for a "deeper message". I found myself very interested in the story and finished it in about 2 days.
1st one. Probably won't read any others, as it's very depressing to be immersed in these sordid tales.
This was a downside- the Spanish accent was terrible and distracting, especially in Texas where Spanish is spoken everywhere.
No- both of the characters were fairly "damaged", so there is no fear that this could happen to me or anyone I know!
