Everyone's picture of a natural winner, Ted Bundy was a bright, charming, and handsome man with a promising future as an attorney. But on January 24, 1989 Bundy was executed for the murders of three young women - and had confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five more women from coast to coast. Ann Rule, who kept in constant contact with Bundy throughout the investigation, tells his story as no other person can, capturing the essence of his magnetic power, unholy compulsion and demonic double life.

    I loved the book the way it was written just kept me on the edge of my seat all the time and the narrator was absolutely amazing with how she changed her voice to fit the story!

  • Eva Ferrell

    This book was an excellent introduction to Ted Bundy. While I knew who he was And of the Florida victims, I was misinformed on his other crimes. My first true crime novel & boy did it take me down the rabbit's hole. I did appreciate how the tone of the novel changed as Ann's opinion of Ted changed. An excellent read (listen). I would suggest not listening before bed-kept me up some nights.
