I wrote this but it disappeared when I submitted so I'll try it again. Do any of you remember Ted Bundy. He was infamous in the 1970s. I'm reading the true crime story written by Ann Rule. It's an unbelievable story of his atrocious crime spree. If you haven't read the book you really should. It's one of the most unbelievable stories I've ever read. You will find it at your library. Excuse the absence of question marks. It's my iPad.

@1creekgirl If it was a friend you could hardly imagine such a thing. But monsters are around us.

@silvermist I also want to read another author who wrote about Ted Bundy. Ann Rule didn't felt the author didn't present Bundy accurately.

I will definitely have to check that one out. I've heard a lot of what he did, but I've never really read his whole story. Thanks for the info!

@RubyHawk I went to my library's website and she has a lot of books! I did find the one about Ted Bundy and added it to my list for my next bag of books. I'm sure that one is a page turner!

@CRK109 It is, I've read all her books I believe but I might have missed a few. She wrote one book about a guy that lives in the same county as my niece but he was innocent.

The book title is The Stranger Beside Me and it's by Ann Rule. If you like true mysteries you'll like it.

I am not able to read at this time I mean in concentration and other things pressing. But I am always fascinated with their stories, the serial killers Ted Bundy was truly such a chameleon and so charming at that yet so evil. I bet it will be a great read Ruby.

@TiarasOceanView the details are gory but it also tells much about how he grew up and how intelligent he actually was and yet he did all those murders.

I believe I read that too. Used to read a lot of true crime and she was among my favorite authors. He was quite the ladie's man. I think that psychopaths and sociopaths are very interesting. How they can be cold and so evil.

I don't believe a normal person can understand it. Maybe it's an abnormality in their brain.

@RubyHawk .....I think it is a number of things together. An abnormality and their history. A hit on the head or brain tumore sometimes does it.

@celticeagle Yes, I've heard that a hard blow on the head can cause brain damage. My better halfs friend fell and hit his head and it caused him to have Parkinson's disease.

Everyone thought he was perfectly normal but that's often the case of serial killers.

@RubyHawk To be honest with you he didn't look that normal to me, but yes was clean cut looking and, not as ragged as most of them. I could tell he was a arrogant narcissist at the very least.

I marvel at the wisdom of her dog. Her dog is friendly with everyone else, except with Ted Bundy It is as though the dog already knows all the bad things that he had done, and wanted to bite his head off but too polite to do so. If only animals can talk, her dog would have saved the lives of many young women.

It's an interesting story. I believe Ann Rule wrote a previous book about Bundy before she knew all the facts. If you remember she was a close friend of his.
