it was amazing
bookshelves: true-crime, non-fiction, mystery
Read in September, 2002

Ann Rule is one of the best True Crime writers around and this was one of her best. I wish she had been more able to get into the head of Gary Ridgeway, but I came away from the book feeling that no one could. He just seemed too normal. I think what was most fascinating is the reaction of his family. No one seemed to have suspected he was leading a double life and I think that is what is so frightening.

I am fascinated by True Crime books because I want to understand the mind of such predators, but I am beginning to think it is not possible. They are driven by things that are so foreign it is like trying to describe color to a blind person. Still, I think that Ann Rule is one of the best.
