They were the dream couple. Bright and beautiful Diane Pikul came from an exclusive college to Manhattan looking for the best of everything and got it - a glamorous career plus a rich and fascinating husband and two wonderful children. Joseph Pikul was a poor boy who had become a wunderkind of Wall Street. In a world where money was king, he was royalty.
Then, one afternoon in their lavish seaside weekend home, the dream ended in a bloody nightmare. In an intensly dramatic trial, the murder of Diane Pikul became the crime that summed up a decade - a story of greed, drugs, perversion, violence and a woman torn between risky independence and a lifestyle she would have to pay for with her life.
Now for the first time the full story is told - a story that puts you in the heart of a victim as well as the mind of a murderer.
The account of the murder of Diane Whitmore Pikul describes how her wealthy and violent Wall Street husband murdered her and then won custody of her children while under indictment for her murder. 20,000 first printing. Tour.
