Not long ago, true crime writer Ann Rule recalls lying on an operating table. The anesthesiologist leaned over before putting her to sleep. "Ann," the anesthesiologist said softly, "tell me, what was Ted Bundy really like?" Despite meeting Florida's electric chair in 1989, the subject of Rule's bestselling book continues to haunt her. Rule and Bundy were friends. They met in 1971 at a Seattle crisis clinic, where they shared the late shift answering a suicide hotline. Their subsequent conversations, meetings, and letters spanned the rest of Bundy's life as he evolved into one of the century's most notorious serial killers. It's been 20 years since Rule first penned this chilling account. But the story--and her 2000 update--will still have readers reaching for their Xanax. No gratuitous gore here; just the basic, bone-chilling evidence. In fact, like a protective mother shielding us from horrors too awful to mention, Rule seems to avoid delving too deeply into crime scene descriptions. She devotes one paragraph in her new afterword to her discovery that Bundy engaged in necrophilia and returned to the scenes of his crimes to "line dead lips and eyes with garish makeup and to put blush on pale cheeks." She tells readers that John Hinckley, who shot Ronald Reagan, and David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam Killer, traded prison correspondences with Bundy. And she hints that Bundy's insatiable killer instincts may have started when he was a 14-year-old paperboy. (Ann Marie Burr, an 8-year-old girl on his route, mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the night and has never been found.) The skimpy update is over too soon, leaving readers wanting more and offering further proof of the public's never-ending fascination with serial killers. --Jodi Mailander Farrell -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

Format: Taschenbuch
This is an excellent true crime book. It has an unusual twist in that the author and the subject of the book, serial killer Ted Bundy, had a platonic relationship that arose from the time they were co-workers for a Seattle, Washington crisis center. Quite frankly, the author initially had no idea that Ted Bundy was anything other than what he appeared to be: a handsome, intelligent, charismatic, and articulate young man, who was, at the time, involved in local politics and later became a law student.
When he became the suspect in the disappearance and murders of a number of very young, pretty women, the author was in total disbelief. As the evidence mounted against her friend, the author, who is a former police officer, could not shut her eyes to the reality that Ted Bundy was actually a very disturbed individual who was guilty of all of which he was accused and probably guilty of other such crimes for which he was not accused for evidentiary reasons. Consequently, the author would suffer some angst for many years, as she struggled to reconcile the Ted Bundy that she thought she knew with the fiend who was compelled to commit so many vicious abductions, assaults, and murders. It is believed that at least thirty-five young women, and probably a good number more, died at the hands of Ted Bundy.
The author details the abductions, assaults, and murders of his victims from coast to coast, which crimes were ultimately to make Ted Bundy a nationwide household name, and an entity to be feared. The investigative efforts of law enforcement officers in the states of Washington, Utah, Colorado, and Florida are revealed, as are Ted Bundy's arrests and his trials. She also details his two escapes from custody in Colorado, the last of which would find him heading to the sunshine state of Florida.

1974 unterschrieb die Autorin und ehemalige Polizistin Ann Rule, die bislang nur unregelmäßig für verschiedene Magazine geschrieben hatte, einen Vertrag für ihr erstes Buch über eine mysteriöse Serie von verschwundenen bzw ermordeten Frauen in Washington State und Umgebung.
Die Arbeit an diesem Buch sollte sich über sechs Jahre hinziehen.
Während dieser Zeit sprach Ann Rule natürlich mit verschiedenen Bekannten, Freunden und Kollegen über ihre Arbeit, unter anderem mit ihrem langjährigen brüderlichen Freund Ted Bundy, mit dem sie längere Zeit ehrenamtlich zusammen bei der Telefonseelsorge gearbeitet hatte.
Als ausgerechnet dieser plötzlich der Entführungen und Morde verdächtigt wurde, fiel nicht nur Ann Rule aus allen Wolken und ging lange Zeit davon aus, daß es sich hier nur um einen tragischen Irrtum handeln konnte.
Auch angesehene Lokalpolitiker initiierten einen Fond zur Verteidigung des aufstrebenden jungen Republikaners, brillanten Jura- und Psychologiestudenten und eloquenten, gutaussehenden Frauenhelden.
Es folgten diverse Gerichtsverhandlungen, zwei spektakuläre Gefängnisausbrüche, weitere Morde und Vermisstenfälle und schließlich wurde Ted Bundy in einem aufsehenerregenden Indizienprozess aufgrund der jeder für sich genommen zwar fragwürdigen, aber in ihrer Gesamtheit doch überzeugenden Indizien wegen dreifachen Mordes zum Tode verurteilt.

This was the third "Bundy Book" to come out with "Stranger" in the title. The first two were the paperback "Ted Bundy: All American Stranger", which was rushed into print on the heels of the Chi Omega verdict and Richard Larsen's "Bundy: The Deliberate Stranger", which came out shortly after the Leach verdict. Larsen's book served as the basis for the TV miniseries starring Mark Harmon and then fell out of print. "Stranger Beside Me" had better legs and remains in print to this day. This book's success comes from Ann Rule being a better writer who wrote from a better perspective. Although Richard Larsen also knew Bundy personally, he was not as close to Bundy as Rule apparently was. Factually, the book appears about as accurate as any other of the plethora of Bundy books, but all these books suffer from a common failing: wittingly or unwittingly, they tend to glamorize a sadistic, brutal recreational killer who really was no stranger than any of the other "serial killers" who captured the headlines of the last half of the 20th Century. This alone separated Bundy from the pack: he was an articulate pretty boy. If you feel you really must read about such a monster, this book is about as good as any of the other Bundy books and probably better than most of them.

This book makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. There's only one problem with these books (and I have to admit, I'm a fan of the genre): you begin to think your husband, boyfriend, brother, cousin, next door neighbor, and the nice little old lady at the hospital who dispenses pleasantries just might be a cold-blooded killer. I'm always a little stand-offish toward my strange-acting neighbor when reading these things. I try to think if there have been any killings or rapes in our neighborhood lately, and when his car doesn't show up for a week or two, I brood a bit on what he's been up to. However, soon after putting the book down, I realize that my imagination has been racing out of control thanks to Ann Rule, and how silly it was to suspect him of Ted Bundy-like behavior.
I hope she comes out with a new one soon. In fact, in case true crime fans haven't noticed, there hasn't been too much fresh product in this area lately. Gee, doesn't anyone want to go on a killing spree, so we can get our kicks?
