Ann Rule decided to write a book about a Seattle serial killer just a few months before discovering that he was her coworker. Ted Bundy went on to die in the electric chair.
True-crime writer Ann Rule passed away this month at the age of 83. As noted by the Associated Press, “Rule said she was fascinated by killers’ lives, going back to their childhood to find clues about why they did what they did. But her books focused on victims, and she became an advocate for victims’ rights.”
Her books are well-researched and thoughtful; you can find them in non-fiction at 364.1 in the Lennoxville Library.
