From Library Journal Crime writer Rule has produced another gripping compilation of true-crime stories, all set in Washington State in the 1970s. Her themes are of personal betrayal and sexual predators. The title story tells of an obsession fueled by jealousy and lust, ultimately leading to death and the ruination of many lives. After his wife left him, beloved high school coach Gabby Moore became obsessed with the wife of a former student and friend, Morris Blankenbaker. Morris's wife, Jerilee, began a relationship with Gabby that deteriorated as the alcoholic Gabby's behavior became increasingly erratic. She returned to Morris, who was soon found murdered, but Gabby, the most likely suspect, had an airtight alibi. Other stories also tell tales of obsession, lust, murder, secret lives and false identities, and sexual depravity. A welcome addition to true-crime collections; highly recommended.
