Nestled in Puget Sound, Whidbey Island is a gem of the Pacific Northwest; accessible only by ferry and the soaring Deception Pass Bridge, it is known for its artistic communties and stunning natural beauty. Life there is low-key, insular, and the island's year-round residents tend to know one another's business. But when the blood-drenched body of Russel Douglas was discovered the day after Chrismtas in his SUV in a hidden driveway near Whidbey's most exclusive mansions, the whole island was shocked. A single bullet between his eyes was the cause of death, but no one could imagine who among them could plot such a devious, cold-blooded crime. But when they found no gun in or near the SUV, Russel's manner of death became homicide.

Not one of her better books. Story was fairly drab. No suspense. Then with the other crimes she weaved into the story that really didn't have any relevance to the main one.

A good piece of non fiction. Who killed a man in his truck on a sparsely populated road? A relentless police detective spent 10 years investigating and bringing to trial the murderer.

Ann Rule rules! Excellent true-crime murder mystery that keeps you guessing till the end. Intriguing!
