Irresistible Impulse

A True Story of Blood and Money

About The Book

From the bestselling author of The Falcon and the Snowman comes a riveting story of money, madness, and murder as a fairy-tale romance turns into a frightening horror.

Swept off her feet by a handsome Englishman and his dazzling fortune, a modest and beautiful young woman from California quickly realizes that her storybook romance is actually an unstoppable horror.

Complete with eight pages of photographs, Robert Lindsey tells the chilling and horrific truth of how the innocent beauty in love became a bullet-ridden, headless corpse found in the English countryside and all of the lies and deceit her fairytale prince told to lead her there.
