I really enjoy reading Ann Rule. She is competent and objective. I appreciate the great care she seems to take in researching the cases she writes about and I admire her detailed presentations of the victims and their families. In this respect, I believe she is to be complimented; she leaves readers with a sense that they know the victim instead of merely the facts of how the victim died. "In the Still of the Night" is a fascinating case and presents a challenge since it is open-ended. Although Rule has put a great deal of energy into writing about this case, I believe that she is too close to the victim's family to present it with her usual grace. And although I do agree with her conclusions and her writing is vigorous, it lands a little flat.
