Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

A story that felt incomplete despite Rule's excellent research

Practice to Deceive - Ann Rule

This latest by Ann Rule stretches over decades and most of the US in putting together the reasons for the murder of Russel Douglas on Whidbey Island. How the investigators tracked down who and why the murder happened is what makes this interesting. However, this single-story book left me feeling rather unsatisfied and the story seemed incomplete. While Rule does remain at the top in those true-crime authors that I will read, this one faltered somewhere. Still, for the die-hard fans out there, this one is worth the trouble. Three and a half stars rounded up to four, and a somewhat recommended.
