The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule
A #1 New York Times best-seller, Ann Rule’s The Stranger Beside Me, gives us a unique perspective into the hidden world of Ted Bundy. Rule gives a chilling and intimate description of her time at a crisis hotline alongside her co-worker, the then charming, sensitive, and trustworthy, Ted Bundy, and the devastating realization that he was a brutal killer hiding in plain sight.
After multiple arrests and an escape from jail, Bundy would later confess to the murders of at least thirty-six women and soon after was executed for three cases.
Rule, a certified instructor for police training seminars, prosecutors, and forensic science organizations, delves into how this savage killer — a man she thought she knew — could have fooled so many, including a professional like herself.
