My Rating: 4 stars
Genre True Crime
Review Snapshot : A Tangled Web is aptly named for this insidious true crime novel! Just thinking about the lies and torture this woman caused gives me the chills!
Ann Rule has always been one of my favorite true crime authors so when I found out she passed I was deeply upset. Not only did we lose a talented writer but one that was extremely passionate about giving victims the stories they deserved. I’ve read nearly all of her novels and have enjoyed each and every one of them. I hope her daughter Leslie Rule (the author of this book) continues in her mothers’ footsteps- she’s talented as well!
A Tangled Web is INSANE!!!! The lies and deceit practiced by this one woman is utterly horrifying and I feel for all the victims who became her pray. The manipulation is baffling, the idea that she got away with it for so long is terrifying, and the tangled web she weaved is so dang insidious that is gives me the creeps. Leslie Rule captured all of this and more in her debut true crime novel and I sincerely hope she continues to write these books. She’s just as talented as her late mother.
One of the main reasons I gave this book 4 instead of 5 stars is that some of it dragged for me. The book is only about 350 pages, but some areas felt a bit repetitive. I understand that we need to hear EVERY SINGLE DETAIL in order to understand this twisted case, but there were times when I was simply tired of hearing it and wanted the author to move on to the case. The actual court aspects only last about 20 pages. I would have loved to see more of that rather than continuous details about this manipulative woman- I got it the first time LOL!
Other than this, A Tangled Web is a solid true crime novel and I enjoyed reading it! As I mentioned, I hope the author writes more because I’ll certainly read them. True crime novels are my kryptonite, and I can’t get enough of them!
