A Rose for Her Grave - the principal story of this collection - vividly recreates the cautionary tale of Randy Roth, a misogynistic sociopath from the Pacific Northwest whose rage was directed primarily at women and children. Addicted to his own greed, Roth exercised a powerful aura of control over his victims, using his ability to charm and boyish good looks to lower their defences. By the time they saw the reality of the madness in his eyes, it was usually too late. This, along with five other chilling cases, bears the stamp of classic Ann Rule - informed, comprehensive, and eerily evocative of man's inhumanity to man. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocelyn | 1/3/2014

    " First Ann Rule book that I read. I enjoyed the book but felt that certain details were prolonged. Yet there were areas (portions of the story) in which I wanted more information but unfortunately she didn't elaborate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/3/2014

    " I really enjoy crime mysteries, and this book was no different. However, due to the way it was written, full of facts and dates, you couldn't help but be reminded that this was a TRUE story. It was fascinating, yet disturbing at the same time. It was hard not to feel sympathy for the victim and families in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faintly Macabre | 12/26/2013

    " Ann Rule does a good job of pulling the reader into her version of crime drama. Basing much of her facts on "court transcripts", she's made an art of supposition. ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 12/24/2013

    " Ann Rule is the best True Crime writer. If you enjoy this genre...you will enjoy all her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 12/23/2013

    " I loved this book! The longer more meatier stories in her books seem to be more well-written than the short stories. There is more detail, suspense, and a little chilling. For me, itt's hard to beat Ann Rule's books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eva Leger | 12/15/2013

    " I love every book Ann Rule has ever written! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 11/22/2013

    " A great starter book for those looking into the True Crime genre. This book is made up of a few shorter accounts of various crimes (along with photos of those involved.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 11/20/2013

    " If you like true crime stories, I would definitely recommend this book. My only issue was that the crimes were dated (book was written in 1993) so the discussion of the technology used was also dated. However, I would definitely pick up another of Ann Rule's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 11/19/2013

    " More Ann Rule--I love her I really do! "

    " More short true crime stories from Ann. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Davida | 11/16/2013

    " This was my first true crime novel. I am amazed that I am reading a real case. Ann Rule did a great job researching the crimes and laying out the story with suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mariola Clark | 10/21/2013

    " This was a chilling book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Dominguez | 10/18/2013

    " not the best, but still a good read. "

    " Good read ~ not the best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 7/26/2013

    " Ann Rule is the master of True Crime narratives! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Beth | 7/21/2013

    " True crimes - Seattle area - reality's a little freaky and closer to home than you think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 7/7/2013

    " Hard to give it a high mark because it is more narration about a true crime but Ann Rule wrote it very well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 7/6/2013

    " They're interesting stories, but somehow reading about cases that happened 40+ years ago loses a lot of it's edge. On the other hand, it's sometimes fascinating how inaccurate, random, and even bumbling the police investigations could be back then. So much of it relied totally on luck. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy Barber | 7/5/2013

    " There are really some sick & twisted people in this world, many of which author Ann Rule has profiled in her many great books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kassie | 3/7/2013

    " Man, I love me some basic solid true crime. Ann Rule isn't my favorite writer but she can craft a true crime story better than nearly everyone else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britney | 2/21/2013

    " This is a book about true crimes. Its sad to read about murders that have happened, but it is a very good book. It gives you an inside look crimes that have made headlines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Doherty | 2/15/2013

    " great book! Love the mini true crime stories in it. "
