The book length section of this title, "In The Name of Love", is an interesting case but Ms. Rule stretches it thin to make it a book length section of this collection. There are several chapters that could have been edited out...and should have been. This is the first time I've had this complaint about one of her collections, and I've read or listened to them all. Still, a sub par effort by this genre's acknowledged queen is still better than most other writers.
The other cases in this collection are more interesting and the writing and editing much tighter.
Laura Merlington does her usual excellent job of reading throughout...although I wish she would use a dictionary for correct pronunciation of words, although she only misses a few in this volume. Altogether, she is a good fit for Ms. Rule's prose.
Is this Anne Rule's best collection? No. Is it worth the listen? Absolutely.

"In the Name of Love: And Other True Cases" contains the very same story as "In the Name of Love," which does not also contain "And Other True Cases."
When I searched My Library, I should have been directed to the shortened version I owned, and I was not.
Therefore, I repurchased a full book with content I already owned but did receive a brief addition. Had I known, I certainly wouldn't have blown my money on this regurgitation.
Audible.com and Ann Rule ought read pay attention to the cover page of republished written books. To the best of my knowledge, when a book is reprinted, in whole or in part, the front cover of the book says such.
Why? So people like me don't get upset when we pay for the same book that's already on our bookshelves disguised under a different name. Take note, Audible.com and Ann Rule. This practice is deceptive and should be corrected immediately.
The ONE star is my optimistic thinking that maybe Audible.com or Ann Rule will be curious as to why this reader is ticked off.
