Golden Boy

By all accounts, Thomas Gilbert Jr. led a charmed life. The son of a wealthy financier, he grew up surrounded by a loving family and all the luxury an Upper East Side childhood could provide: education at the elite Buckley School and Deerfield Academy, summers in a sprawling seaside mansion in the Hamptons. With his striking good lucks, he moved with ease through glittering social circles and followed in his fatherโ€™s footsteps to Princeton.
But Tommy always felt different. The cracks in his faรงade began to show in warning signs of OCD, increasing paranoia, andโ€•most troublingโ€•an inexplicable hatred of his father. As his parents begged him to seek psychiatric help, Tommy pushed back by self-medicating with drugs and escalating violence. When a fire destroyed his former best friendโ€™s Hamptons home, Tommy was the prime suspectโ€•but he was never charged. Just months later, he arrived at his parentsโ€™ apartment, calmly asked his mother to leave, and shot his father point-blank in the head.

If you like true crime you need to read this, what a fascinating and well researched story about mental health and privilege that left me speechless. My plan was to read a couple of chapters and ended up reading it in one sitting.

Thank you St. Martin’s Press for this gifted copy.
