Publisher Description

America’s #1 true-crime writer fulfills a murder victim’s desperate plea with this shattering New York Times bestseller.

“If anything ever happens to me…find Ann Rule and ask her to write my story.”

In perhaps the first true-crime book written at the victim's request, Ann Rule untangles a web of lies and brutality that culminated in the murder of Sheila Blackthorne Bellush—a woman Rule never met, but whose shocking story she now chronicles with compassion, exacting detail, and unvarnished candor.

Although happily ensconced in a loving second marriage, and a new family of quadruplets, Sheila never truly escaped the vicious enslavement of her ex-husband, multi-millionaire Allen Blackthorne, a handsome charmer— and a violent, controlling sociopath who subjected Sheila to unthinkable abuse in their marriage, and terrorized her for a decade after their divorce. When Sheila was slain in her home, in the presence of her four toddlers, authorities raced to link the crime to Blackthorne, the man who vowed to monitor Sheila's every move in his obsessive quest for power and revenge.

Every breath you take

Ann Rule had a gift of laying out multiple story threads and building the characters of those threads into a captivating book. The story story of Sheila Bellush and her family is shocking and tragic. The hatred, manipulation and ultimately violence depicted in this book is something no one should go thru, but it happens too often.

Great read

I was so into this book. I can't begin to describe my disgust of Allen. He mad my skin crawl. He is the devel. I wondered why Maureen was't prosecuted for her involvement. I think there was no question she knew everything from the beginning. My heart and prayers go out to Sheila's family. No one should have to live through what they did.
