Publisher's Summary

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.

OK, but not one of Anne Rules best books

This book was fine. But not one of Ms. Rules best. Audible only offers Anne Rules books in the abridged format. So, maybe that is why I was left feeling like the story was wanting.

So Not Worth It

Any additional comments?

I know it's and abridged version, but I've read the hardcopy and they cut out some of the most interesting things about the case. I can't complain too much, I did know I was getting an abridged version, but yikes, if other abridged books are like this, I'm amazed anyone bothers.

The narrator and I think the actual recording itself are terrible. I can't hear her well at all, no matter how much I turn up the volume, use headphones, etc. Its a very poor recording. The narrator doesn't do anything to help, she's bland and forgettable. Really, its worth just reading the actual book rather than listening to this.

Big disapointment and waste of credit

The reader managed to irritate me (listen to the sample before purchasing, I know I should have). The stories manage somehow to be uninteresting.

Female Psychopath perfectly presented

This is a gripping, fast moving story about a female psychopath following her nature by executing elaborate plots to gain material advantages. The story pulls you along down the labyrinth of a psychopathic mind. Deceptions, their playing out over time and their devastating effects are presented in a story that you can't stop reading.

Short but good

As always Ann delivers... She managed to tell a story in great detail in a small amount of time! The narrator was perfect!

Ended just like that!

The narrator was excellent however the story ended very quickly, I would have liked a bit more of an ending.
