Joined in a romantic love that most people only ever dream about, Pat Taylor's marriage to Tom Allanson was all she ever wanted. Both came from fine Southern families, and both longed to recreate for themselves a plantation where they would raise horses, grow roses, and move with grace and style in the highest social circles of Atlanta; in short, to be the Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler of their time. But scarcely two months later, their perfect world had erupted into family hatreds, terror, bloodshed and murder, The beautiful estate was mysteriously burned to the ground and Tom Allanson stood accused of the brutal slaying of his own mother and father. Before the terrifying truth about the perpetrator was revealed, other innocent victims were to suffer attempts on their lives as intricate family loyalties and cruel, obsessive jealousies were played out.

The basic storyline was very good; but there was far too much family background to muddle through. Ann Rule is one of my favorite authors but she missed the mark on this one.

Vain and manipulative, it?s as though Pat Taylor is stuck at the emotional age of three when her every need was met by her family. Without a thought to the welfare of her husband, children, and her parents, she uses their love for her against them in a quest to build her own ?Gone with the Wind? world, regardless of who dies along the way. In her mind, the people in her life are no more capable of suffering than the dolls that she plays with. This book is a fascinating psychological case study of a female sociopath.
