An unlikely couple: Jens Soering, the geeky son of a German diplomat and Elizabeth Haysom, the worldly, aloof daughter of a wealthy steel executive and his artist wife. The discovery of the bodies of Elizabeth's brutally murdered parents panicked their affluent, rural Virginia community into thoughts of a serial killer on the loose. Suspicion turned to Jens and Elizabeth when they fled the country, criss-crossing Asia and Europe, leaving a trail of passionate love letters, eventually landing in the UK where they were arrested for writing bad checks. Jens says his love for Elizabeth drove him to confess the murders.
