A Rose for Her Grave

I have always been a fan of Ann Rule and read a few of her books before I reviewed everything I read. I love True Crime. This book did not disappoint. The story of Randy Roth is a shocking one, you wonder how he got away with it for so long.

As usual, Ann Rule did a great job of telling the whole story from the POV of multiple people. What I like about Ann Rule’s books is she doesn’t just cover the crime. She covers the pre-life, the crimes, the discovery of the crimes, the criminal investigation and the jury’s decision.

The book was captivating from beginning to end, no part of it was dull. I don’t really know what else to say other than if you like True Crime, any Ann Rule book is recommended.
