I had a difficult time staying with this book and finishing it, although I’m a big fan of Ann Rule. Perhaps I was frustrated by the lack of answers after all these years. If I feel that way, I can’t even imagine what it must be like for the mother of Ronda Reynolds. Because the case has not been resolved, this was not a typical Ann Rule book. I like when she draws clear pictures of all the people involved and takes the reader along as the pieces of the puzzle come together. This case remains murky as do the backgrounds and true character of some of the main players. So although I felt a great deal of empathy towards Ronda Reynold’s strong and resilient mother, I was a little disappointed in the book. Even so, I’m glad Ann Rule wrote it because it may help find justice for Ronda someday. For more information on this case go to www.justiceforronda.com, the site that was established by Ronda’s mother, Barb Thompson to keep her daughter’s case alive.
