The author of eight New York Times bestsellers, Ann Rule first won nationwide acclaim with The Stranger Beside Me, about serial killer Ted Bundy. Her Crime Files volumes, based on fascinating case histories, have assured her reputation as our premier chronicler of crime. Now the former Seattle policewoman brings us the horrific account of a charismatic man adored by beautiful and brilliant women who always gave him what he, money, their very lives....
When attorney Cheryl Keeton's brutally bludgeoned body was found in her van in the fast lane of an Oregon freeway, her husband, Brad Cunningham, was the likely suspect. But there was no solid evidence linking him to the crime. He married again, for the fifth time, and his stunning new wife, a physician named Sara, adopted his three sons. They all settled down to family life on a luxurious estate. But gradually, their marriage became a nightmare....
In this gripping account of Cheryl's murder, Ann Rule takes us from Brad's troubled boyhood to one of the most bizarre trials in legal history, uncovering multiple marriages, financial manipulations, infidelities, and monstrous acts of harassment and revenge along the way. Dead By Sunset is Ann Rule at her riveting best.

    I made it through the book, but I thought I might not. At one point I was uncertain which I loathed more -- Brad Cunningham or Anne Rule's horribly predictable writing. An interesting, yet annoying "read."

  • Jackie Vance

    Absolutely spell bounding! Never realized how interesting true crime can be. Just started my next Ann Rule intrigue! Excellent way to escape yet never leave the house.

    Very well told account of a very bad person. Gripping and could not stop listening. Ann Rule stayed true to her elite form. Loved it
