Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A ship's pilot legendary for guiding mammoth freighters through the narrows of Puget Sound, Rolf Neslund was a proud Norwegian, a ladies' man, and a beloved resident of Washington State's idyllic Lopez Island. Virtually indestructible even into his golden years, he made electrifying headlines more than once: after a ship he was helming crashed into the soaring West Seattle Bridge, causing millions in damages; and following his inexplicable disappearance at age 80. Was he a suicide, a man broken by one costly misstep? Had he run off with a lifelong love? Or did a trail of gruesome evidence lead to the home Rolf shared with his wife, Ruth? On an island where everyone thought they knew their neighbors, the veneer of the Neslunds' marriage masked a convoluted case that took many years to solve. And, indeed, some still believe that the old sea captain will come home one day. "The Sea Captain" is a classic tale as blood chilling as murder itself. Along with six other equally riveting, detailed accounts of destruction and murder committed without conscience or regret, Ann Rule takes readers into frightening places they never could have imagined in No Regrets.

Review:

"Prolific and talented true crime author Rule proves her warranted reputation as one of the genre's leading lights with the 11th entry in her Crime Files series. Two-thirds of the book is devoted to one case, the disappearance of an elderly sea captain from his quiet community of Lopez Island in Washington State. As with many of the stories recounted in previous volumes, Rule succeeds in pulling the reader into a mystery that was largely of local concern. With a novelist's skill, she brings to life the missing Norwegian mariner, Rolf Neslund, and his difficult marriage to Ruth Myers, who became the prime suspect after he vanished without a trace. Handicapped by the absence of a corpse, the local authorities, inexperienced in homicide inquiries, doggedly persisted over years until justice was won. The richness of this case does have the unintended effect of rendering the shorter sketches that follow — including the tale of a woman beaten into a coma, a murder victim found months after the fact and a young bank robber — less compelling, but few genre fans will complain; the Neslund case speaks for itself, as does Rule's skill as a storyteller." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this eleventh installment of Ann Rule's bestselling series of paperback originals, she explores the true tales of sociopaths and psychopaths who commit murder with no conscience, no compunction, no remorse, and no regrets.

This book contains one long crime investigation followed by several short crime investigations. In the long case, "The Sea Captain," the in-depth description of the characters and setting of the scene is followed by the building of tension as things start to go wrong. As the crime is investigated, you feel the same tension of slow discovery as the detectives do.
Each of the short crime stories is striking and tragic: one exception is the story of a kidnapping victim and how she survived her kidnappers. I just couldn't put this book down.
I'm always eager to get Ann Rule's newest book, and her writing in "No Regrets" was even better than I expected. A great read.
