From the Publisher:
An exciting edition in the #1 New York Times bestselling series of true crime originals?the case of a billionaire's son who mysteriously fell off a balcony to his death?and a chapter on the Josh and Susan Powell case.

California billionaire Jonah Shacknai's eight-year-old son dies falling off a balcony in his mansion. Several days later, Jonah's live-in girlfriend, Rebecca, is found hanging, nude, with her hands tied behind her. A police investigation rules her death a suicide?however, this seems unlikely to everyone who knew her. There are several suspects in this case: Jonah's brother, Adam, who arrived the day after Jonah's son fell. There are Jonah's two ex-wives; the second being Max's mother. Using her keen insight and her reporter's talent, Ann Rule delves into this mysterious unsolved case, and numerous others, in this chilling yet riveting collection of tales, including a chapter on the Josh Powell case, which ended in the tragic murder/suicide of Josh and his two sons.

Author Bio
Ann Rule
True crime writer Ann Rule knew at an early age that she was destined for a life of crime. The daughter of a high school track coach and a professional caregiver in Lowell, Michigan, she paid frequent visits to her grandparents in nearby Montcalm County, where her grandfather was the sheriff and where their home, his office, and the county's jail were all under one roof. While her grandmother cooked for the inmates, Rule served them dinner. By age eight, she knew she wanted to become a police officer. Years later, after receiving her M.A. in criminal psychology from the University of Washington, Rule was hired by the Seattle police. Little did she know, but there would be no hold ups or even the occasional parking ticket in her future. At that time, policewomen were hired as glorified case workers. Discouraged by the system and eager to start a family with her then-husband, an English teacher, Rule resigned from the force and had four children. Soon after, her husband died of cancer, thus leaving Rule with a bustling family to support. Hence, the writing began. Rule's first true tales of crime and murder appeared anonymously in the pulp magazine True Confessions. Later, she was hired as a staff writer for True Detective magazine, covering two cases a week under the pen name, Andy Stack. Feeling her knack for true crime writing, Rule hit the books once again, this time in police science, so that she could conduct her own investigations. She learned how to collect fingerprints, record evidence, and judge the distance between a wound and a spatter of blood by the relative shape of one drop, among other things. With this added bit of expertise, Rule was primed for legitimate publications, like Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and Ladies Home Journal. Rule's articles on horrific true crimes appeared in national magazines for many years before she wrote her first book, THE STRANGER BESIDE ME in 1980. Inspired by her experiences working as a counselor at the Seattle Crisis Clinic with Ted Bundy, a man later revealed to be a vicious serial killer, STRANGER launched Rule's career as a successful participant in a relatively new genre of crime literature. She has since written several other true crime books, including SMALL SACRIFICES (1987), IF YOU REALLY LOVED ME (1991), and AND NEVER LET HER GO (1999).
