The Stranger Beside Me

The Stranger Beside Me is the shocking true story of serial killer, Ted Bundy. The amazing thing about this book is that it was written by a close friend of his, Ann Rule. Ann and Ted worked together at the Crisis Hotline many years ago while Ted was a psychology student at the nearby University. Ann recalls hearing his soothing voice as he talked with someone about their problems. They spent many nights at the Crisis Hotline and soon became friends. Although Ann was never attracted to Ted, she admitted he was extremely handsome. As time went on, they went their separate ways. Ann's life would change forever when she began putting the pieces together after a few young ladies went missing and others were killed. She doubted it was Ted, but at the same time believed it was his doings. This chilling novel allows us to see the other side of Ted Bundy. The side that actually cared about people and just wanted freedom. He had such a bright future ahead of him, but something set him off and he began his infamous killings, killing around 40 girls and women. The viewpoint of this book is something I never expected. Ann was his friend, even though she worked very closely with the police. But no matter what, she stuck with Ted until the very end. If you love a good thriller, or a real life murder mystery, I highly recommend The Stranger Beside Me.
