Publisher's Summary

Gifted with a brilliant mind, blessed with a beautiful family - and cursed with a destructive madness.

In this harrowing New York Times best seller, Ann Rule is at her masterful best as she winnows horrific truths from the ashes of what seemed like paradise in Prairie Village, Kansas. Rule probes the case of Debora Green, a doctor and a loving mother who seemed to epitomize the dreams of the American heartland. A small-town girl with a genius IQ, she achieved an enviable life: her own medical practice, a handsome physician husband, three perfect children, and an opulent home in an exclusive Kansas City suburb. But when a raging fire destroyed that home and took two lives, the trail of clues led investigators to a stunning conclusion. 

Piece by piece, Ann Rule digs beneath this placid Midwestern facade to unveil a disturbing portrait of strangely troubled marriages, infidelity, desperation, suicide, and escalating acts of revenge that forever changed dozens of lives.

crazy story

this was a hard listen. not because it was bad, but because as the listener we know where it's headed and can't stop the crimes. I'm surprised it hasn't been turned into a tv series yet. just crazy.

A great Ann Rule book!

I really enjoyed this book! It's quite a story. Hard to believe things like this actually happen. I found it pretty interesting from start to finish. Debora's mental health was very interesting, it's quite a roller coaster. I really like the narrator, I found her to be pleasant to listen to. I think it's one of Ann's better books!

Quite possibly The the best Ann Rule book

I am a hard core Ann Rule fan, even had the pleasure of meeting her years ago at a book signing my then boyfriend was conducting security at in Everett, WA. I read this book decades ago but after revisiting it now, long after reading all of her books....I do believe it is her best work!

THIS IS JUST A FAMILY STORY

I have read many of Ann's books and most are murder mystery that you can not put down. I am a few hours into this story and it just seems like a story of a bad marriage. There might be more to come, but I'm loosing interest, so I probably won't get to the end

Sad and terrible.

Storyline told well and this narrator is so good at portraying each character. I'm going to listen to more books like this true crime genre that are narrated by Cassandra Campbell.

Very good true crime book!

Ann Rule is a masterful writer when it comes to true crime, Bitter Harvest is another winner! Crazy story. Sad and terrifying at times. Very compelling. I was so eager to finish this book that I listened at a higher speed. As usual, narrator Cassandra Campbell is excellent! She’s one if my favorites.
