Deb Rhodes, September 16, 2014 (view all comments by Deb Rhodes)
In this true story of obsessive love, Diane Downs does the unthinkable. She shoots her children in an attempt to work things out with her married lover, who has made it plain he doesn't want any kids.

Anne Rule is at her best as she takes us through the harrowing night that tragedy strikes Diane's children, and how it effects everyone around them, from their grandparents to the medical personnel trying to save their young lives, to the detectives who work so tirelessly to win justice on behalf of the children.

This is a chilling read, for it examines the heart, mind and motives of a woman living without a conscience or moral compass.
