Was she a sweet southern charmer? Or a cold – blloded killer?
For their wedding portrait,petite Pat Taylor and handsome Tom Allanson posed as Rhett and Scarllett. Both came from fine southern families,and dreamed of the Tara-like plantation where they would grow roses,raise horses,and move in the genteel circles of Atlanta Society.Less than two months later,their dream exploded in terror and murder: their beautiful home mysteriously burned to the ground and Tom was convicted of the Brutal Slaying of his mother and father.
Pat’s only brother had died in a puzzling suicide,her grandparents-in-law were poisoned with arsenic,and no one….from her wealthy employers to her own children… no one was safe when Pat Allanson didn’t get her way.It took Georgia lawmen more than two decades to stop her for good…. if indeed they have.
