In her first book-length investigative chronicle since In the Still of the Night, Ann Rule unravels a shattering case of Christmastime murder off the coast of Washington State with the clarity, authority, and emotional depth that her readers expect. It's a case with enough drama, greed, sex, and scandal to be called "The Real Housewives of Whidbey Island." But this was not reality television. This was murder: pure, cruel, ugly, and senseless. And someone had to pay the price

Not one of her better books. Story was fairly drab. No suspense. Then with the other crimes she weaved into the story that really didn't have any relevance to the main one.

only one crime in this book as opposed to the 3 or 4 she normally does

A good piece of non fiction. Who killed a man in his truck on a sparsely populated road? A relentless police detective spent 10 years investigating and bringing to trial the murderer.

Ann Rule rules! Excellent true-crime murder mystery that keeps you guessing till the end. Intriguing!
