    My heart was broken 💔 when I heard that Ann Rule died. To learn that her son had neglected and abused her to gain money made me sick. Her home nurse quit her job because she couldn’t stand to see this happen and continue. There will never be another true crime author like her. She dove right into the victim, family and issues with no excuses for them, but with compassion. I could go on and on. RIP Ann

    There is no one who writes books like Ann Rule does. She takes you right into the mindset of the people involved. 0 From the first of her books i read to the last (I have purchased every book she ever wrote)
    Unfortunately, when does leave us, there will never be an author like her again. Ann’s various jobs before she became an Author, most likely will never be repeated by anyone in today’s and any future economy.

      I loved reading and still love to read her books. God bless her soul for all she did and accomplished. She was right on talking about the killer lifes and victim and how police came in and did forensics. Is there anybody out there that writes like Ann Rule? She was my favotirite author and I will miss her. May she test in peace in heaven.
