In March 1912, Gene Grace, a young Atlanta businessman, was found shot in the locked bedroom of his fashionable home ""between the Peachtrees."" Daisy Grace, his flashily dressed Yankee wife from Philadelphia, was soon arrested on a charge of assault with intent to murder. Gene Grace lingered for two years, but was paralyzed. More importantly, under Georgia law, he could not testify against his wife. Prosecutors were forced to rely upon the circumstantial evidence of an alleged ""diabolical plot."" The Atlanta newspapers--led by the Georgian, under the very new control of Mr. Hearst, that giant of ""yellow journalism""--covered the case relentlessly. Papers across the country followed the drama for months, concluding with a five-day trial held in the searing heat of a Georgia summer. This is story of the tragic romance between ""the Adonis of a country town"" and the woman known to all as ""Daisy of the Leopard Spots.
