The Stranger Beside Me
Ann Rule was a writer working on the biggest story of her life, tracking down a brutal mass-murderer. Little did she know that the young man who was her close friend was the savage slayer she was hunting. Ted Bundy was everyone's picture of a natural 'winner' - handsome, caring, brilliant in law school, successful with women, on the verge of a dazzling career. On 24, January 1989 Ted Bundy was executed for the murders of three young women; he also confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five more young women from coast to coast. This is his story - the story of his magnetic power, his unholy compulsion, his demonic double life and his string of helpless victims. It was written by a woman who thought she knew Ted Bundy, until she began to put all the evidence together, and the whole terrifying picture emerged. . .
