Description
A troubled Los Angeles socialite is both terrorized and tempted by a killer in this "brilliantly written" true story by the author of A Death in Canaan (Ann Rule). Hope Masters lived in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Beverly Hills--but was entitled to food stamps. Pretty, petite, and privileged, she was recovering from two failed marriages and a string of poor decisions. But when Hope met and fell in love with a handsome advertising executive, she believed her life was finally back on track--until the morning she woke up to find the barrel of a gun in her mouth. Hope's fiancé lay dead in the next room. His killer was a new acquaintance who'd been visiting the couple in a remote ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. He claimed to be a journalist, but his real identity was as mysterious as his motivations. Even more bizarre, however, was what happened at the end of the long, nightmarish weekend in which Hope saw everything she cared about destroyed: She began to fall in love with her tormenter. A fascinating and frightening portrait of the power of evil to lead the most innocent of victims down the darkest of paths, A Death in California is "a first-rate piece of reporting" ( Kirkus Reviews ) on "one of the strangest cases in the annals of American crime" ( The New York Times ).
