Crime Author Sues Paper Over Negative Review After Reviewer Revealed To Be Engaged To The Killer Book Was Based On


Kerry McDermott at the British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a piece on a crime writer who sued a newspaper over a negative review.

A true crime author is suing a paper over a damning review of her book about a woman who killed her husband - after it emerged the man who wrote it was engaged to the killer. 

Ann Rule launched legal proceedings against the Seattle Weekly after it ran an article accusing her of 'sloppy storytelling' in her book Heart Full of Lies, which is based on the story of Liysa, who was jailed for the manslaughter of her husband.

Ms Rule maintained the newspaper printed the review 'unedited', an failed to disclose that its author, Rick Swart, had entered into a relationship with Northon.
