The Stranger Beside Me


Ann Rule was a writer working on the biggest story of her life, tracking down a brutal mass-murderer. Little did she know that the young man who was her close friend was the savage slayer she was hunting. Ted Bundy was everyone's picture of a natural 'winner' - handsome, charming, brilliant in law school, successful with women, on the verge of a dazzling career.

Reviews of The Stranger Beside Me

Overall customer rating: 4.000

Imagine working with a handsome, mature, caring young man and liking him. Now imagine that you find out that the nice young man you?ve spent many evenings working with is responsible for the deaths of more than thirty women. In this book, Anne Rule takes you through her own journey of shock and denial when she finds out that the nice young man she had once worked with is a serial killer. In characteristic style, she examines the psychological aspects of Ted Bundy?s crimes, brings the killer and his victims to life, and makes you wonder about the boy next door.

Easy to read and digest. Ms Rule's other books are worth reading too.
