Behind the facade of a quintessential perfect Southern Belle beats the heart of a killer--and she is on the loose.
Newlyweds Tom and Patricia Allanson seemed to have a bright future ahead of them. But just months after their 1974 wedding, Tom's parents were found murdered in their home, the first chapter in the dark saga of the DEADLY MAGNOLIA.
Former friends tell how Patricia hated her in-laws, referring to them as "those hateful people," and lawyers reveal how her actions during Tom's trial ensured his conviction. But, as Ann Rule, author of Everything She Ever Wanted, details, Patricia was just getting started. She has since served two sentences for attempted murder--once when she was convicted of trying to poison Tom's grandparents with arsenic and again after she established an upscale daycare center and tried to kill her first clients with massive doses of sleeping pills! This chilling episode of AMERICAN JUSTICE® features moving interviews with Tom Allanson, and Tom and Patricia's daughter Susan, who finally turned her mother in after years of defending her.
Despite a history of sociopathic crimes, Patricia Allanson is free again, and few know where she may be, or when she could strike next...
