Good story - good characters, and they weren’t too archetypal, which was nice :).
I wanted more grit, though - more collapse of society, more terror and panic.
There were some chilling bits - don’t get me wrong, I devoured this book in 2 weeks time (and it was chunky!). My husband misses me lol.

Ann Rule was working on the biggest story of her career, tracking the trail of victims left by a brutal serial killer. Little did this future best-selling author know that the savage slayer she was hunting was the young man she counted among her closest friends. Everyone's picture of a natural winner, Ted Bundy was a bright, charming, and handsome man with a promising future as an attorney. But on January 24, 1989 Bundy was executed for the murders of three young women - and had confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five more women from coast to coast.

Solid True Crime

This book was a good piece of true crime literature, told from the perspective of a casual friend of Ted Bundy. I think the author did a great job describing the tension between reconciling the man she knew with the man capable of such violence.
I do wish there had been more emotional exposition of various characters - particularly the law enforcement on the hunt. The author worked closely with them, and so often they were relegated to overly simplified quotations as “we took the search to the ground” or “we were stumped”.
But maybe I’m being overly critical and asking for what this book was not - I just wanted more from the world! Ann rule seems like a great author and I’m sure I’ll try another if her true crime novels, if just to see what her writing is like on a less personal narrative.
