Last Dance, Last Chance Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Last Dance, Last Chance

In this biography, Ann Rule the author tells us the story of Anthony Pignataro. He was a cosmetic surgeon, and a famed medical researcher whose flashy red Lamborghini and flamboyant life-style in western New York State suggested a highly successful career. But appearances, as this shocking insider account of Pignataro's tailspin from physician to prisoner proves, can be deceiving-and for the doctor's wife, very nearly deadly. No one was safe if they got in his way. With scalpel, drugs and arsenic, he betrayed every oath a physician makes-until his own schemes backfired.

This is the true account of a doctor who is a REAL criminal, and a real sociopath. The book will have you turning pages in disbelief that a medical professional could sink to the depths of greed, manipulation, and even slow deliberate murder.
