I should be grateful that I had a ringside seat to the monstrous scenario Ted Bundy acted out as...the "glamour boy of homicide"... I am not grateful. I would rather I'd never had a book of my own, much less twenty-nine and that Ted's victims had lived...If only I had the power to make none of it real." (The Stranger Beside Me xii-xiii)The Stranger Beside Me is at once an autobiographical book and a true crime expose. Published originally in 1980, nine years before Ted Bundy's execution, it has been revised and updated in 1986, 1989, 2000 and in 2008-9 to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of Bundy's execution. The Stranger Beside Me was the book that began Ann Rule's successful career as a true crime writer. What makes the 20th anniversary reissue of the book so intriguing is that Ann Rule has returned to this seminal book, adding chapters and insight into her odd relationship with one of the United States' worst serial killers, Theodore Robert Bundy or "Ted" as she calls him. While sitting next to Ted as they worked the phones on the night shift of a crisis center, Ann never had a clue about his disturbing double-life. What also makes The Stranger Beside Me so intriguing is that while Ted is rampaging through his murders, Ann's career is growing as well.
