An intriguing, sad, true crime story of a woman, Deborah Farrar, whose personality disorder leads her to destroy her house by putting it on fire, killing 2 of her 3 children. During that time period, Deborah's husband, Dr. Michael Farrar, had left her to live with another woman. There were good reasons why he left her but Deborah puts all the blame on him for the disintegration of their marriage. Uncommunicative, slovenly with her appearance and with her housekeeping, Deborah made no moves to change the undesirable parts of herself that many, besides Michael, found hard to handle. How the investigation revealed Deborah as the firesetter and killer of her children makes for fascinating reading as only Ann Rule can write.
