A Rose for Her Grave - the principal story of this collection - vividly recreates the cautionary tale of Randy Roth, a misogynistic sociopath from the Pacific Northwest whose rage was directed primarily at women and children. Addicted to his own greed, Roth exercised a powerful aura of control over his victims, using his ability to charm and boyish good looks to lower their defences. By the time they saw the reality of the madness in his eyes, it was usually too late.

Okay why did I love bundy so much but hated this ?? well didn't hate it was still interesting to read and facts, was very dense though I wish it had more murder? lol !I get that wasn't the point .. perhaps I shall only read serial killer books ( )

The centerpiece to this look at murder cases is Rule focusing on the case of Randy Roth. Rule calls him a modern day Bluebeard and the comparison is apt.

Roth we find truly hates women and woos with the plan to marry them in order to collect their insurance.

The first case is set up in typical Rule fashion. She goes into Roth and his victims background. This book differs slightly due to the time between two victims and Roth's apparent plans for more in between. Roth focuses on the women in this case more than usual and I think it's because of Roth's hatred towards women. I did like how Rule got into how hard it was and still is for female police officers and prosecutors due to them being seen as "bitchy" or mean if they raise their voices. Due to the high stakes with Roth when he is brought to trial it was very insightful to get into everyone's heads for this one.

After the main case then Rule goes into five bonus cases. Not all ended satisfactory (bad guys brought to justice) or I just wished for more details. ( )

I liked the opening story (although I thought the courtroom part was a drag because it repeated a lot we already knew). I was not fond of the shorter crime stories in the back. An ok true crime read. ( )

(I said it was short)
The first story is apparently about Randy Roth. So might re read. ( )

It is amazing to me that people really believe that they can get away with murder. Ann Rule writes about cases where individuals really thought they would do just that, but got caught. Enlightening! ( )
