Publisher's Summary

In 1887, Elizabeth Berry found notoriety throughout the nation after the death of her daughter, perceived by many to be the cruellest of murders. There were many who protested her innocence in the affair, but there were also suspicions surrounding another death related to the nurse - that of her mother.

Suddenly Elizabeth Berry's dark story began appearing darker still. For the first time, we discover the true story behind this infamous case of the first woman to be hanged at Liverpool's Walton Prison.

    An avid Audible listener for the past two years, it fits in superbly with my busy lifestyle. Love crime and historical novels most.

    Story
    "What a Wicked Woman"

    There are no spoilers here as Miss Berry's guilt is pronounced virtually from the first page. And indeed, she was found guilty in a court of law and sentenced to death. This is real crime and the case put is more about 'why' than 'who' done it.

    Story
    "Bit repetitive"

    Really enjoyed it to begin with. Became very repetitive, going over things already told. Felt as if it was just dragging the story out.

    "Wonderful narration by Gordon Griffin and a very compelling story."

    Alot of Research has gone into this book. As someone who is particularly interested in True Crimes set in the Victorian era this was always going to be a "Must Buy." Particularly as the villain is a Woman, a Poisoner and a Psychopath. I particularly enjoyed the scenes set in the Courts as well as the Newspaper Reporting. The Letters to the newspapers were fascinating. You really get a glimpse into ordinary people's lives, as well as their awful deaths, through the medium of the criminal justice system. By the end of the book I could see Elizabeth Berry clearly. The poem reading scene was particularly chilling. Scary woman!
