Ann, Rule

a Tour De Force From America’s Best True-crime Writer. —kirkus Reviews

dr. Debora Green And Her Husband, Dr. Michael Farrar, Seemed To Have It All: A Happy Marriage, Successful Medical Practices, And Three Bright And Beautiful Children. This Image Was Maintained Until A Fire Broke Out At The Luxurious Mansion Owned By The Couple, Taking The Lives Of Two Of Their Children. When The Fire Was Labeled Arson, The Police Began To Focus On Deb Green, Who Is The Fascinating Subject Of Bestselling Author Ann Rule’s Most Recent True-crime Epic, bitter Harvest: A Woman’s Fury, A Mother’s Sacrifice.

a Chronicle Of A Tragedy That Took Place In The Posh Suburb Of Prairie Village, Kansas, bitter Harvest Is The True Story Of The Disintegration Of A Marriage And Its Horrifying Consequences. Rule Follows The Arson Investigators, Forensic Scientists, And Prosecutors Who Had To Untangle Green’s Intricate Puzzle Of Psychopathology. Could A Mother And A Doctor, Committed By The Hippocratic Oath To Do No Harm, Deliberately Set A Fire That Took The Lives Of Her 13-year-old Son And Six-year-old Daughter? Were The Near-fatal Episodes Of Intestinal Distress Suffered By Her Estranged Husband Caused By His Wife? Could A Woman Be So Full Of Vengeance That She Would Destroy Her Children And Watch As Her Husband Grew Deathly Ill From The Poisoned Food She Fed Him?

none Of Rule’s Previous Subjects — Not Diane Downs Of small Sacrifices Nor Brad Cunningham Of dead By Sunset — Have Inspired Such An Enthralling Study Of The Criminal Mind.
