Summary:

GIFTED WITH A BRILLIANT MIND, BLESSED WITH A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY -- AND CURSED WITH A DESTRUCTIVE MADNESS
In this harrowing New York Times bestseller, Ann Rule is at her masterful best as she winnows horrific truths from the ashes of what seemed like paradise in Prairie Village, Kansas. Rule probes the case of Debora Green, a doctor and a loving mother who seemed to epitomize the dreams of the American heartland. A small-town girl with a genius IQ, she achieved an enviable life: her own medical practice, a handsome physician husband, three perfect children, and an opulent home in an exclusive Kansas City suburb. But when a raging fire destroyed that home and took two lives, the trail of clues led investigators to a stunning conclusion. Piece by piece, Ann Rule digs beneath this placid Midwestern facade to unveil a disturbing portrait of strangely troubled marriages, infidelity, desperation, suicide, and escalating acts of revenge that forever changed dozens of lives.

    VERY DEPRESSING STORY. I DON'T KNOW WHY I EVEN FINISHED LISTENING. IT'S LIKE A BAD MOVIE, YOU HATE IT, BUT FOR SOME REASON JUST NEED TO WATCH IT UNTIL THE END. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY ONE UNLESS THEY WANT TO FEEL VERY DEPRESSED.

    Interesting Story. Hard to believe that this is true.

  • Shane Nixon

    For me, Rule has set an incredibly high standard, and quite frankly, this one doesn't measure up. I think there just wasn't enough drama or mystery in the crime itself. Maybe not, but to me it wasn't as good as her others for some reason. I wasn't crazy about the narrator either, though it would have been tolerable if I'd found more interest in the book. It won't keep me from reading Rule again, but this one isn't GREAT!

    As always, Ann Rule does a great job with true crime stories. Worth listening to.
