Pat was a beautiful, willful child whose family belonged to the upper crust of Georgia society. Little Pat's parents adored their daughter and satisfied her every desire. But as Pat grew older, her pampered life took a twisted turn when she found that her beauty and spoiled demands were not enough. Now, to get everything she ever wanted, she would resort to lying, deception, robbery, and worse.

Ann Rule uses her characteristic insight and exclusive access to the facts to create a gripping portrait of that rarity in crime -- a female sociopath.

    " As always, Ann Rule has shared a true story and left me wanting more. Did Pat really plan the murders of her in-laws, or did she actually do the shooting? Why on earth would a family continue to cover for someone like her for so many years?
    And who will die next? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 3/3/2010

    " Ann Rule is an excellent crime writer. This story details what happens when a spoiled girl with emotional issues is raised by parents who insist she's never done anything wrong in her life. The story was as much about family dysfunction as it was about a series of murders and attempted murders. "
