IF YOU REALLY LOVED ME: A True Story of Desire and Murder.
New York: Simon & Schuster, (1991). SIGNED hardcover first edition - The fourth true crime book by Rule. A bizarre account of murder plotted by a millionaire computer expert and, not incidentally, a sociopath. In 1985 he arranged to have his daughter by his first marriage, 14-year-old Cinnamon, shoot and kill his 23-year-old wife, Linda. When she was apprehended, Cinnamon pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a 27-year term, keeping silent about the roles of her father, aged 32, and Patti in the murder. Eventually, however, she did implicate the pair, now-married, and they were arrested. INSCRIBED on the title page. Photographs. 443 pp. ISBN: 0-671688359.
