Una sera del giugno 1966 Anne Marie Fahey, trent'anni, segretaria del governatore del Delaware, scompare senza lasciare traccia mentre si sta recando a un appuntamento con colui che è il suo amante segreto da oltre due anni: Thomas Capano. Tra le figure più importanti e rispettate della città, «Tommy» è un avvocato di grido, carismatico, affascinante, ammirato. Ma nei mesi che seguono la scomparsa di Anne Marie, gl'investigatori scoprono lentamente la verità: Capano era un feroce manipolatore, guidato soltanto dal potere e dall'avidità, capace di legare a sé un gran numero di donne grazie a una completa sottomissione psicologica. Le indagini puntano nell'unica direzione possibile, l'omicidio volontario, ma mancano gli elementi chiave: il cadavere, l'arma del delitto... Attingendo a testimonianze, diari dei protagonisti, lettere e e-mail, e aggiungendo una formidabile analisi delle motivazioni perverse di un killer, Ann Rule ci racconta una vera tragedia di orrori e ambizioni, passioni e ossessioni, in cui una giovane donna vulnerabile paga il prezzo più alto in una relazione contorta e mortale.

I have to say that this ended up being my favorite true crime book by Ann Rule. I think the main reason is that this one stayed really focused on not only the the accused, but also the victim and other women in this man's orbit. Usually Rule's books start to read as formulaic with her going into the Leggi tutto
So many people in the true crime world are always saying she was the best but definitely not agreeing with them on this book. She is so biased it gets annoying. She is constantly making up excuses for some as if her readers do not have a mind of their own we are being force fed. This is one older st Leggi tutto
One of the things that reading Man-Apes or Ape-Men?: The Story of Discoveries in Africa reminded me of is how important taxonomy is. The way human beings are wired means that (1) it's hard for us to talk about things we don't have names for and (2) we understand the world by categorization and compa Leggi tutto
