Annotation

On Friday, 17th November 1972, a shocking crime rocked London. Wealthy American socialite Barbara Baekeland had been stabbed to death in her Chelsea apartment. The man arrested for the murder: her own son. A spellbinding tale of money and madness, incest and matricide, SAVAGE GRACE is the saga of Brooks and Barbara Baekeland - heirs to the Bakelite plastics fortune - and their handsome, gentle son, Tony. Alternately neglected and smothered by his parents, he was finally driven to destroy the whole family in a violent chain of events.Unfolding against a glamorous international background, SAVAGE GRACE tells the doomed Baekelands' story through remarkably candid interviews, private letters and diaries, as well as confidential hospital and prison records. A true-crime classic, it exposes the harrowing truth behind the envied lives of the rich.
