One of my favorite writers has died. She certainly lived her life doing what she loved. Helping the families of victims of murder. Ms Rule was a wonderful lady and I emailed with her on many occasions back in the 1990s. My thoughts and prayers to her daughter Leslie and her many friends and loyal readers.

Janet S... I never imagined she could actually die... No one could write stories with such rich detail.. So much background on the victims life- compassionate and caring.. Even though the crimes she wrote about were heinous- she managed to say a little about that part and moved on. Made you care and remember the victims.. Blessings to get family- she will be missed
