Summary

The Stranger Beside Me: The Shocking True Story of Serial Killer Ted Bundy Audiobook by Ann Rule tells the story of a real life writer specialized in murders who was on the verge of writing the biggest book of her life as she was following tracks left by one of the most brutal killer in the history of the United States. At the time she was researching these murders, she didn’t have the slightest idea that the serial slayer she was after was one a young man she considered among her closest friends.

Consider as a natural winner, Ted Bundy was an intelligent, charismatic, and attractive man with a promising future career as an attorney, but all that changed when Bundy was convicted to death penalty for the killing of three young women and confessing his responsibility in the murder of at least thirty-five more women all over the United States.

Little Ann Rule, a correspondent of the True Detective magazine, knew that the boy next to her at the Suicide hotline volunteer work was no other but Bundy, with whom she spent more time due to their coincidental schedule. As she would state later: “he took lives, but he also saved lives”

The account of this story is one that no one else has done before and the depiction of the behavior of the serial killer is told capturing all the attractiveness, profane impulse and diabolic dual life.

Review

The Stranger Beside Me: The Shocking True Story of Serial Killer Ted Bundy Audiobook by Ann Rule is available for the first in this format, the account of the working relation with one of the most horrible serial killers in history.

The audiobook provides fruitful details about Bundy’s creepy and shocking crimes with the added value that the writer knew personally and was friend of the unsuspected slayer at the very first time of meeting back in 1971 in a suicide hotline center. Their contact, not so frequent, kept from that time, went through the first disepearence of young women in the area and ended until the execution of Bundy.

This personal approach to one of the most terrible crimes in USA history gives the story a remarkable flavor and it is enhanced by the narration of Lorelei King during the 18 hours and 32 minutes of this audiobook.

The account of the friendship of Rule and Bundy was adapted as a TV movie in 2003, but the film failed to portrait the fact that Rule, an experienced criminoligst and former cop “couldn’t spot the killer”. Besides this routine adaption of th estory, the audiobook offers a great account of a story told with a flavor not found in any other real-life crime stories.
