The Stranger Beside Me Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Stranger Beside Me

Ann Rule reveals all about Ted Bundy. She reflects on the time she and Ted spent working on a suicide hot line and the compassionate side of him he allowed her to see. Giving us time lines and locations, she spells out the true Ted and the horrific murders he committed. Amazingly, Ted was able to gain a fan club of deluded young women. Ann carries us through more than one of Ted's prison escape and gives an inside scoop about his famous defense attourney, Ted himself. Out of respect for the victims and families or perhaps to make real the dispicable crimes, Ann lists each victim in a ceromonial fashion.
