<BLOCKQUOTE>The startling and dramatic true story behind the murder of Maurizio Gucci, and the rise, fall, and rise again of the Gucci dynasty</BLOCKQUOTE><P>Did Patrizia Reggiani murder her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, in 1995 because his spending was wildly out of control? Did she do it because her glamorous ex was preparing to marry his mistress, Paola Franchi? Or is there a possibility she didnt do it at all?</P><P>In this gripping account of the ascent, eventual collapse, and resurrection of the Gucci dynasty, Sara Gay Forden takes us behind the scenes of the second trial of the century and exposes the passions, the power, and the vulnerabilities of the greatest fashion family of our times.</P><P>From the day Guccio Gucci opened his modest leathergoods shop in Florence in the 1900s to the day Investcorp took control of the multimillion-dollar company in 1993, from the signature horse-bit loafers and bamboo-handled bags of the 1980s to the sexy, hard-edged Tom Ford designs of today, The House of Gucci</I> tells a riveting story of high fashion, high finance, and heartrending personal tragedy.</P
