The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule

First sentence:

"No one glanced at the young man who walked out of the Trailways Bus Station in Tallahassee, Florida at dawn on Sunday, January 8, 1978."


"Ted Bundy was everyone's picture of a natural "winner" -- handsome, charming, brilliant in law school, successful with women, on the verge of a dazzling career. On January 24, 1989, Ted Bundy was executed for the murders of three young women; he had also confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five more young women from coast to coast. This is his story written by a woman who thought she knew Ted Bundy -- until she began to pull all the evidence together, and the whole terrifying picture emerged from the dark depths." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

This was a good true crime book in which Rule not only wrote about the life and crimes of Ted Bundy, but also wrote about how she was fooled by him for many years.
