The Stranger Beside Me: Ted Bundy: The Classic Story of Seduction and Murder by Ann Rule
Ann Rule was working on the biggest story of her career, tracking the trail of victims left by a brutal serial killer. Little did she know that the savage slayer she was hunting was the young man she counted among her closest friends. Ted Bundy was a bright, charming, and handsome man with a promising future as an attorney. But on January 24, 1989 Bundy was executed for the murders of three young women - and had confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five more women from coast to coast. Ann Rule, who kept in constant contact with Bundy throughout the investigation, tells his story as no other person can, capturing the essence of his magnetic power, unholy compulsion, and demonic double life.
"True Crime is so hot right now. Some of our members started talking excitedly about the podcast My Favorite Murder and it was obvious we needed to pick a book to go along with that passion. We figured that we would all find newer titles and read them on our own regardless, but it might be harder to convince ourselves to read the OG true crime book – Ann Rule’s The Stranger Beside Me. The choice was easy!" -- Izabel
