McMillan Palgrave
Elizabeth Lochtefeld was a glowing, charismatic and driven woman who'd built a million-dollar fortune in Manhattan before settling into a new life in one of America's most elite resort communities. She'd planned to dedicate the rest of her life to charity-and to marry and finally start a family of her own. When Lochtefeld met thrity-seven year-old Tim Toolan-- a tall, strapping, handsome, and Columbia graduate and Wall Street ace who'd made it to Vice President at Smith Barney-she thought she'd found Mr. Right. She told friends she was in love. She hinted at marriage. But soon she saw past the Golden Boy facade, finding a deeply troubled man with a history of erratic bahavior -- a man given to violent mood swings who'd been fired from his position at Smith Barney after trying to steal an $80,000 Roman bust from a Park Avenue antiques show. Two days after she ended the affair, she lay dead on the floor of her Nantucket cottage.This is the story of love gone terribly wrong.

Elizabeth Lochtefeld was a glowing, charismatic, and driven woman who'd built a million-dollar fortune in Manhattan and then settled into a blissful early retirement in one of America's most elite resort colonies, Nantucket. She'd planned to dedicate the rest of her life to following her dreams, the most important of which was to marry and finally start a family of her own.
When Lochtefeld met thirty-seven-year-old Thomas E. Toolan III, a tall, strapping, handsome Columbia graduate and Wall Street ace who'd made it to vice president at Smith Barney, she thought she'd found the man she hoped for. But soon she saw past the Golden Boy facade, finding a deeply troubled man with a history of erratic behavior - a man given to violent mood swings, who'd been fired from his position at Smith Barney after trying to steal an $80,000 Roman bust from a Park Avenue antiques show.
After telling her brother of a terrifying night held captive in Toolan's apartment, Lochtefeld broke off the relationship and fled to the one place she had always felt protected by family and friends: the island of Nantucket. What she didn't know was that time was already running out. At that very moment, Toolan was making his way toward Elizabeth Lochtefeld's safe harbor - having reportendly purchased a knife along the way. Hours later, police would find her body on the floor of her kitchen, the evidence of her ferocious fight everywhere. Locthefeld's life ended in unspeakable tragedy and her former boyfriend, Tom Toolan, was arrested for the crime.
