andlt;Bandgt;THEY KILL WITHOUT CONSCIENCE.andlt;BRandgt; ANN RULE PORTRAYS THEIR SHATTERING CRIMES WITHOUT PITY.andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In eight stunning Case Files volumes, from andlt;Iandgt;A Rose for Her Graveandlt;/Iandgt; to the #1 blockbuster andlt;Iandgt;Last Dance, Last Chance,andlt;/Iandgt; Ann Rule reigns as "America's best true-crime writer" (andlt;Iandgt;Kirkus Reviewsandlt;/Iandgt;). Now, she updates the most astonishing cases from that acclaimed series — and presents shocking, all-new true-crime accounts — in one riveting anthology. In every explosive chapter of andlt;Iandgt;Without Pity,andlt;/Iandgt; Ann Rule deepens her unrelenting exploration of the evil that lies behind the perfect facades of heartless killers...and the deadly compulsions of greed and power that shatter their outward trappings of material success. andlt;BRandgt; They are the admired, trusted neighbor; the affable family man; the sexy, charismatic lover; the high-achieving professional. Perhaps most frightening of all is that they are heroes in their own minds. But when someone gets in the way of their deluded dreams, they are capable of deadly acts of violence with no remorse. Analyzing the true nature of the sociopathic mind in chilling detail, Ann Rule traces the murderous crimes of seemingly ordinary men — killers who drew their unsuspecting victims into their twisted worlds with devastating consequences.

Synopsis:

The "New York Times" bestselling true-crime author updates some of the most astonishing cases from the eight volumes of her stunning Case Files series and presents shocking, all-new true-crime accounts, in one riveting anthology. Original.

About the Author

Ann Rule is a former Seattle policewoman and the author of twenty New York Times bestsellers, including eight Crime Files volumes: Last Dance, Last Chance; Empty Promises; A Rage to Kill; The End of the Dream; In the Name of Love; A Fever in the Heart; You Belong to Me; and A Rose for Her Grave. She is also the author of Every Breath You Take, the only true-crime book written at the request of the murder victim — a woman ensnared by the violent obsessions of her millionaire ex-husband; ...And Never Let Her Go, the nationally renowned case of deadly seducer Thomas Capano, which was made into a CBS miniseries; and Bitter Harvest, which unravels the shattering case of Debora Green, a doctor and loving mother driven to lethal acts of vengeance. Her other titles include the bestsellers If You Really Loved Me, Everything She Ever Wanted, Small Sacrifices, Dead by Sunset, The Want-Ad Killer, The I-5 Killer, Lust Killer, and her classic The Stranger Beside Me, the unnerving chronicle of Rule's dawning horror as she realized her friend and coworker, Ted Bundy, was a serial killer. She has also written a #1 New York Times bestselling novel, Possession.

Ann Rule has testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee and regularly presents seminars to law enforcement agencies, including the FBI Academy, as well as district attorneys and victim support groups. She served on the U.S. Justice Department task force that set up VI-CAP (the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program now in place at FBI headquarters) to track and trap serial killers. She lives near Seattle. For more information, visit her website at www.annrules.com.
