Absolutely amazing. Ann Rule nails it AGAIN.
Eye Opening Story of Derailed Justice
This incredible story is told with gripping suspense. Having been around law enforcement my entire life, I was stunned at how this case was treated. I applaud the mother and the individuals who put justice above themselves!

I recall this story and enjoyed reading what actually happened or was suspected of happening. It was well written except that the exact facts were repeated over and over again ad nauseam. I got so utterly bored I nearly gave up on it. I stuck with it for Ronda.
Still a cold case :(
This book was horrible. Let me start by saying
:: they never solve the crime::
But let me go back though, first off I am a huge fan of Ann. In fact I am an addict of her books, if you haven't read The Stranger Beside Me, you must. That said this was a huge waste of time. Long winded and an excessive amount of unnecessary back story. I pushed through though and was VERY disappointed that it was for nothing because you never find out who did it. Thumbs down.
Not that great
It's an interesting and captivating story but there were a lot of errors in the book. I also felt as though all of the information presented in the novel was done in a very poor manner. It gave too much background of some of the people that didn't make the story line any better. Most of the bios of the people were poorly put together and scattered around in awkward places. I was more interested in the case and the story of what really happened. I didn't even finish it. I just googled the case and got the rest of the story from news articles I found. I see these reviews of people being excited about novels from this author but after reading this book, I'm not even sure I would want to pay to read another of her novels.
Not her best
I have read several books by Ann Rule, and this one is just average. First of all, the proof reading was sloppy, leaving several glaring errors such as missing words. Second, there is information introduced which is never followed up. Was any investigation ever done to determine if Ron Reynolds's allegations about charge accounts Ronda had opened by forging his signature were true? When Ron openly stated that he had paid the insurance after Ronda died, why did the company pay the claim?
Finally, I expect the author to take sides, but one of the standard techniques of debate is to present and demolish the opposing side's arguments point-by-point. Almost nothing of the opposing view is given.
A quick read, certainly not among the memorable.
Makes you wonder.......
........just how inept policemen can be. Frustrating at times and sometimes slow paced but a good book. Thank goodness we all have mothers!!! Where would justice be without them?
Lots of background info. It's very disappointing to think that police departments in this day in age can be left unaccountable and incompetent. The Lewis county sheriff's office seems to be the polar opposite of what police departments' objective existence is. Ann rule truly captures the pure incompetence of the leading officials over there in Washington.
Queen of the genre
Again Ms. Rule shows why she is on top of the true crime genre. In this book, she allows the reader to see that she can become personally involved in the lives of the grieving victims and how painful murder of a loved one truly is.
Ann Rule is my all time favorite true crime writer, and this book, her latest, doesn't disappoint. Sad story with no real ending but unlike one hour crime TV shows, real life doesn't always see the bad guys get their due. Thanks Ann for another great read!
