Ann Rule (Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Barbara Hershey, Beaches) is an ex-cop working the suicide hotlines in Seattle. To make ends meet, she indulges in another obsession — writing true-crime stories. She has a daughter, a fulfilling life, and a good friend in a man named Ted Bundy (Golden Globe® nominee Billy Campbell, Once and Again), a handsome and intelligent charmer who’s just been accepted into law school in Utah. What’s captivating Ann’s attention now is a string of brutal murders—missing-women cases that have stretched from Utah to Seattle. It’s being called the most intriguing unsolved series of crimes since Jack the Ripper and she's been offered the chance to turn her articles into a book. But the more she digs and uncovers, a dreadful and unavoidable truth is staring her directly in the face - her friend Ted. Unbelievably authentic and terribly shocking - The Stranger Beside Me is based on Ann Rule's New York Times bestseller of her eyewitness account from the darkest depths imaginable. The story of a friend who became a stranger, and a stranger who became one of the most notorious serial killers.
