Whisperwing.....Ann Rule is my absolute favorite when it comes to True Crime. I love how she explores the psychological side of the victim and the offender. She has a great way of turning her facts into a very interesting easy to read story. I always feel like I know the whole story when I read an Ann Rule book.
You better be prepared to stay up until you finish "Small Sacrifices" it's impossible to put down once you get started. I find that to be true of all her books.
Let me know how you liked it. I'm betting that you will love it.
