Acclaimed for her ‘devastatingly accurate insight’ (The New York Times Book Review) into the criminal mind, Ann Rule has chronicled the most fascinating cases of our time in her bestselling Crime Files series.
For this sixth stunning collection, Rule has culled from her private files the most-asked about homicide-cases – riveting accounts of seemingly normal men and women who are compelled by a murderous rage to suddenly lash out at innocent victims.
Torn from the headlines, here is the shocking case of a Seattle city bus ride that turned to mayhem and murder at the hands of a gunman. While the scene unfolds as in a terrifying movie, Rule answers the haunting question ‘how could this happen?’ and expertly constructs the unseen chain of events that resulted in an explosive and shattering tragedy.
Included here are nine other sensational cases that illuminate Rule’s uniquely authoritative view of the human psyche gone temporarily berserk. You may think you know who is safe and who is dangerous; in A RAGE TO KILL, Ann Rule shows that none of us are truly protected from the irrational violence that can erupt from the killers among us.
