Adult fiction novel i Name that Book (november 2015)


Another terrifying and interesting book by Ann Rule. I can't wait to read more!

Ann Rule's Dead by Sunset is the tragic tale of Cheryl Keeton, a highly-skilled attorney in the Pacific Northwest, her adoration for her three sons, and her justified terror of her husband Brad Cunningham, who was the prime suspect for her brutal murder on September 21, 1986.

In Rule's usual impeccable style, she traces the upbringing, lives, and personalities of the characters in the book until they become three-dimensional, and so alive that you either stand with them or against them. In all the true crime writing I've read, I have never hated an accused killer the way I did Brad Cunningham. His relentlessness, his narcissism, the way he treated his wives and his children, his lies, his abuse, his manipulations, and his rage and violence all made me feel physically ill. This was a man who was cruel for the sheer love of cruelty, a father who used his sons as pawns, a husband who did not know how to love, only to charm, and how to draw women into his web and from there control ever interaction they have with the world. I was frightened for much of the book for like many women, I have lived with an abuser, and some of the story made me remember things long pushed out of my mind or intentionally forgotten.

Dead by Sunset is an extremely good true crime book, probably Rule's best. Her research is excellent as is her presentation. I wish she were still alive so she could write more stories and expose more murderers for what they are.

A Certain Type of Evil

" Any of us who has raised children know, as John F. Kennedy once said, to have a child is to give hostages to fate' "
Although I have read this book before, reading it again with it's updates still sends shivers upmy spine. Would I have been lured if approached by him?
His charm fooled so many.
This is important for young people to know. Be vigilant and never trust a stranger. Yet, Bundy wasn't a stranger to Ann Rule and it took decades for her to fully accept the depravity that lay underneath the charming facade.
If you are interested in knowing more about the victims, watch "Surviving Bundy", with interviews with some survivors

Kind of lack luster. Doesn't really give any specific details about anything in particular. Also not for someone that isn't already well versed in Bundy's crimes.... that being said, if you are well versed then it doesn't bring anything new to the table... very meh over all. I feel like there could have been more details given on them working together or more into the investigations that Ann had access to later, its a very surface view book otherwise.
