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.

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.
