TITLE (EDIT)
Making Moves: Another Look At Victims And Choices In Ann Rule's True Crime Stories
DESCRIPTION
Ann Rule gives the murderers a hell of a punch in each story. That's the way it must be. It is the angle from which she writes and no one, no one is going to condone the acts of a murderer, least of all me. However, other realities exist. Wrong moves made by murder victims, albeit unfortunate and irreversible, are, like it or not, realities. It is on some of these moves that I wish to focus for the sake of enlightenment and/or instruction. Of course, to know for sure, you must read the books!
