The true crime account of the murder of a brilliant attorney by her sociopathically narcissistic husband.
I was looking for a quick and easy read and decided to return to an old favorite. Dead by Sunset is one of Ann Rule’s best books, offering an exquisitely detailed portrait of a narcissist and the destruction he created in the lives of his wives (5 of them), girlfriends (too numerous to count), kids (sadly he was a bad father to 6 kids), and business associates. He even tried to call the judge in his murder trial to the witness stand because he was that convinced that the world revolved around him. Even though I knew the outcome, I was still fascinated thanks to Rule’s superlative storytelling abilities.
