The Mother
Once mistaken for a young Elizabeth Taylor, the weathered, 64-year-old Sante Kimes may have lost her movie-star good looks, but she never lost her pathological ambition to con, steal, and murder, and to use her emotionally explosive son as a pawn in her twisted schemes.

The Son
Friends said Sante Kimes had a Svengali-like psychological hold on her handsome but troubled 23-year-old son Kenneth. Completely dominated by his controlling mother, Kenneth would express a Norman Bates-esque love/hate for Sante, who seemed to call the shots in the most notorious and bizarre mother-and-son crime team in history.

The Socialite
82-year-old Irene Silverman was suspicious of the surly young man she had just rented a $6000-per-month apartment to in her Manhattan mansion and was planning to throw Kenneth Kimes out. Then she suddenly disappeared without a trace-- except for the bloodstains outside her luxury townhouse.

The Crime Spree Of The Century
Linked to an unbelievable cross-country crime spree that may have included as many as four brutal murders, police finally caught the Kimeses. In the sensational trial, damaging evidence was presented that left no doubt in the jurors' minds as to the Kimeses' guilt in the murder of Irene Silverman. A judge sentenced the Kimeses to life in prison. Now, The Mother, the Son, and the Socialite takes you behind the scenes to reveal a story of two master criminals who thought they could get away with anything-- including murder...
