Publisher's Summary

In 1985, 32-year-old David Brown seemed to have it all. A computer genius with a million-dollar business, married for the fifth time - most recently to a 23-year-old beauty, Linda, the mother of his new-born baby - he was the living emobodiment of a rich playboy. But the signs of the dream life's dark underside were already emerging - especially in Brown's penchant for divorcing his young wives as soon as they matured to full womanhood. The darkness came into full, violent bloom the night Linda was found shot to death in her own bed. Shockingly, Brown's 14-year-old stepdaughter Cinnamon confessed, earning a prison sentence for the murder in a case that rocked California's Orange County community. But even after the verdict was in, officials in the District Attorney's office suspected that all the facts were yet to be revealed. What their further investigations uncovered was a trail of lechery, deceit and betrayal - a trail that began and ended with David Brown. Filled with horrifying findings from the author's exclusive access to the details of the investigation, If You Really Loved Me is Ann Rule's most compelling work yet - a chilling true crime masterpiece!

Absolutely dreadful

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not applicable.

If you’ve listened to books by Ann Rule before, how does this one compare?

I am a great fan of Ann Rule the author, but as a narrator she is embarrassing. I only listened for fifteen minutes and gave up.
I also found the accompanying background music distracting and cannot fathom it's purpose. A complete waste of time.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ann Rule’s performances?

I'm afraid not.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from If You Really Loved Me?

I would not have edited out anything because she is an excellent writer.
