    1 thought on “But I Trusted You and Other True Cases

    1. The blood is beginning to run thin in the Ann Rule's Crime Files series, in which annually she trots out one new case at novella length along with four or five short pieces from the 1960s and 1970s when she wrote prolifically for true-crime magazines. The centerpiece story is about Chuck Leonard and Teresa Gaethe-Leonard, a Snohomish County, Wash. couple whose marriage hit the rocks in the mid-'90s and ended in the shooting murder of Chuck, a much-loved school counselor. Teresa was fingered for [...]

    2. This is the 1st Ann Rule book I am reading since her untimely passing. I was saddened to hear about her death being that she is one of my favorite authors. The title of the book does not suit every case chronicled within the pages but they each had some interesting aspects for the reader. I have summarized my thoughts on some of the cases detailed in this volume of crime files. But I Trusted You- I personally believe Teresa was lying about Chuck molesting their daughter Morgan. As Rule stated th [...]

    3. I enjoyed the "stories" of Ann Rule's #14, but I have to say - it's badly written even by Rule's standards. It's not just how Rule's inability to understand when to use a comma or semicolon creates nonsensical phrases and goofy lists, or that she's an enthusiastic misuer of the word "literally" (traits that are present in all of her books, though perhaps more so in this volume than in others). This book feels like a mediocre-to-poorly written college undergraduate attempt at writing nonfiction: [...]

    4. For some crazy reason, I like reading real life crime stories but at the same time I find them horrific. It's hard to believe how totally depraved and evil these criminals are. I also like 48 Hours Mystery.I will say that I didn't particularly appreciate the unsolved crime stories (I think there were two) that were part of this book. I want the mystery solved and the criminal to pay!

    5. Hard to really give a book on true crime stars at all. It is sometimes good to read about real crimes to remind ourselves that it truly is a scary place out there and you can never be too careful. The evil in mankind never ceases to amaze.

    6. I'm not a great fan of Ann Rule at the best of times, but this book was appalling.Rambling, disjointed and scattered with repetitive and insignificant detail.One star because the stories were true, but other than that not worth reading.

    7. I have heard a few compaints about this book, but I found nothing to complain about. I enjoyed the book as I have most of Ann's books.

    8. So I went on a True Crime and romance read binge starting on Friday. I honestly didn't feel like posting updates (I embraced my laziness) so here goes some huge review posts. I have been reading Ann Rule for the past couple of years, and decided to start reading her other books I haven't gotten around to yet. I honestly enjoyed the stories in this one even though there are a lot of questions left for some of the stories and I hate things to not have a tidy little ending. I thought Rule's writing [...]

    9. *"But I Trusted You" (Lake Goodwin, WA, 1997), the murder of Chuck Leonard by his estranged wife Teresa Gaethe-Leonard. As with some of her other case files ("In the Name of Love," for instance), Rule was trying too hard to make me like the victim, so that, although I certainly wouldn't take Teresa Gaethe-Leonard's side (nor trust her word about anything, including the wetness of water), I found myself doubting the reliability of my narrator. Evaluating Rule as a person, I actually like the fact [...]

    10. I'm a sick person. I admit it. I have a perverse secret. Sometimes I like reading about psychos and dirtbags. This book fits the bill.This first story Ann calls: But I Trusted You. I call it: A Player Gets Played! A man in his 40's, who has never had a real relationship because he has been too busy having sex with any and every woman who crosses his path, gets married to greedy psycho who squeezes all the money and gifts she can get out of a man before moving on. Even at the wedding, the groom m [...]

    11. Seven entries of varying quality, including:But I Trusted YouThe longest chapter though not necessarily the best. A strange and sad story of a husband killed by his crazy wifeDeath in Paradise: The Haunting Voyage of the SpellboundCreepy and atmospheric goings-on at sea; almost like a Charles Williams novel. Ultimately unresolved. Sharper than a Serpent’s ToothPretty tedious since things are obvious from the start. The most interesting portion is the introductory discussion of cases where no b [...]

    12. But I Trusted You is the fourteenth volume in author Ann Rule's "Crime Files" series, where she takes a novel length case, makes it the main focus of the book and throws in several "smaller" type cases as well. As much as I have enjoyed Ms. Rule's previous efforts, But I Trusted You left me wanting and a bit disappointed. Let's start with the feature length case, which concerns the murder of teacher Chuck Leonard by his estranged wife Teresa. I personally did not find anything noteworthy with th [...]

    13. I used to like Ann Rule very much. I liked the way her books were not "just" true crime books. She used to do an excellent job at describing real people, the good and the bad, and her writing used to be good. Unfortunately, little by little she seems to be getting somewhat prudish and judgmental. It might be age, it might be having seen too much ugliness, it might be that she used to have a better editor. I have not checked whether she used a new editor for this book, but the overall quality has [...]

    14. Ann Rule never disappoints me, her cases always horrify and fascinate me. I think the best thing about her cases is they are ones not in the national spotlight, most happened many years ago and without her books we usually wouldn't be aware of them unless we were personally touched in some way by them. A few of the stories near the end were only touched on lightly. The very last one Dark Forest: Deep Danger should of been a whole book unto itself, very frightening and cries out to be explored on [...]

    15. I gave this book 5 stars! The reason is beside Ann Rule knows what she writes about . The stories are all about true crime and though the subject isn't pleasant it is good to know that you cannot be too careful in life . I really dislike the fact that some of the cases Ann Rule writes about are still unsolved. I haven't read a book that Ann Rule has written that I haven't liked (once again I don't like the fact that there are evil people in the world and that some families will never never have [...]

    16. I love true crime stories, and I have found that Ann Rule's writing is certainly my style. She gives all the facts as well as some theories where necessary, but doesn't reach too far. I hate that whenever you hear a crime story on the news, you only hear one part of it. Crimes take time to solve and by the time they get all the information it is usually old news and not put back out for the public to see. I hate getting interested in something and never finding out how it ended, so these stories [...]

    17. I am a true crime junkie. I love watching TV shows about true crime, and reading true crime books is right up there. In this book, Ann Rule covers several true crime cases, most of which happened in Oregon in the 1960s-1970s. She does a great job of covering the crimes and the outcomes without using too much jargon or getting bogged down in the details. It make for such an interesting read, and I will definitely be reading more of her books!

    18. This was a good book full of tragedy and murder. This is my first book I've read by Ann Rule, and it didn't disappoint. I was drawn in by the stories and their horror. The victims of these crimes didn't even know they were in the presence of a killer until it was too late. A great read for fans of true crime.

    19. This book was good. I could not put the book down. Everytime I got a chance to pick up the book. I did not want to put it down. The stories were true and she has a way of drawing you in wanting to know more. I am ready for another Ann Rule true crime book.

    20. What can you possible say about true crime. This book is filled with stories of murder and suspected murder. An interesting read.

    21. Not sure how many AR books I've read. Guessing the amount to be 10. Typically, they involve a high profile case of a true crime and all the nitty gritty background, the gory details, and the evolution of the arrest and trial of the culprit(s). This one is a tad different. Instead of dealing with one or two corpses in 350p. this time the author seemed to take a 6 or 7 would be crimes that didn't have the"body" to make into a full length book. She must've saved all the files because all in the col [...]

    22. This was a good book but not as fast to read as the others. I only enjoyed the first story and the rest of the book I just read to finish.The first story is about a guy named Chuck Leonard and his wife Theresa Gaethe. They seem happy enough together even though Theresa only dates men with money. Chuck has quite the past and Theresa is cheating on her husband with her only fling from Hawaii. Theresa ends up getting pregnant with Chuck's baby and has a beautiful daughter with him. She's unhappy an [...]

    23. It's Ann Rule which means good true crime. Not her best but worth reading if you like crime and non fiction

    24. Overall I really enjoyed this book. The shorter stories are easy to read and you don't have to wait so long for a conclusion, but there were a few things that bothered me and caused me to give this book four not five stars. But first the good parts. I found the book easy reading, each story drew me in and I was eager to find out what happened to the people involved. The case of the Spellbound was the main reason I decided to read this book, as it takes place at sea. Though unsolved it is a haunt [...]
