A friend of mine recommended this series to me when she saw I was reading some nonfiction about criminal psychology, and though I've never really read True Crime, I picked this installment in the series up from a library sale when it caught my eye. I suppose I have mixed feelings about it, but it was certainly engaging. I doubt I'll be methodically picking up Rule's other works, but this was an interesting, in depth look at one case, with short explorations of another, and the detailed research was certainly impressive.

In the end, I'll probably continue sticking mostly to psychological thrillers that are wholly fiction and to nonfiction that deals heavily with psychology and only wanders into casefiles, but I'm glad I at least tried this, and I may try more if particular cases catch my interest. For what it is, I'd say this is probably a 4 star read, though for me personally it's probably closer to a 3.

Recommended If you're interested in true crime and/or bank robberies. ( )
