"A tangled web of family dysfunction, fatal attraction, and greed wends its way from the elegant Southern mansions of old Montgomery, Alabama, to the New Age salons of Boulder and rural, windswept Wyoming in Drifting Into Darkness, a true saga of bloodshed and betrayal.On Thanksgiving weekend in 2004, philanthropists Charlotte and Brent Springford Sr.--a wealthy, socially prominent Montgomery couple--were brutally beaten to death with an ax handle in their elegant Garden District home. Suspicion quickly fell on the couple's gifted but troubled son Brent Jr., who would be tried and sentenced to life without parole. But a mystery remained: Who was the mysterious woman that investigators believed manipulated Brent into this murder?Drifting Into Darkness follows investigators as they trace the elusive accomplice, a woman who claimed to be a Native American shaman. Author Mark Pinsky gets up-close and personal with the case, having broken the cardinal rule of journalism by involving himself in the story. With access to unique and heart-breaking behind-the-scenes material, the author takes readers into the troubled, tortured minds of the case's main players.
