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 defenses. 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.

Interesting nonfiction cases

These true crime cases written by Ann Rule, all of which I believe are newly told in this book, are well-written depictions of the havoc scum of the earth criminals impose upon innocent victims, their families and friends. Highly recommend.
The narrator, Laural Merlington, is a brilliant choice by Ann Rule to tell these stories in an authentic manner.

Can't Get Enough Ann Rule!!

I've been an Ann Rule fan for years - but now that I live in the Pacific Northwest, I'm even more of a fan. It's been a while since I was so hooked to a story, I listened to the events unfold during every spare moment I could steal away from the daily grind. The story of Randy Roth was utterly fascinating. My only criticism - and I admit, I'm probably being picky - is the narration. This is the second time I've listened to an audiobook narrated by Laural Merlington (and again, that was another fascinating audiobook I couldn't put down), and ... she over-enunciates. For example, every time she says "our," it sounds like "ow-wer." But she does read at a perfect pace, I'll say that. So overall, if you are a True Crime fan, get this audiobook!
