Murder, Mystery and My Family

A True-Crime Casebook from the Hit BBC Series




A compelling true-crime collection of female killers and their families’ search for justice, from the team behind hit BBC series Murder, Mystery and My Family

Did she do it?This riveting book, from the team behind the hit BBC series Murder, Mystery and My Family, explores five historical true-crime tales with women at their heart - from a case of 'poison panic' in 19th century Essex to a pre-War murder that tragically tore a Dorset family apart. Using fresh research and interviews with descendants of those involved, An Innocent Woman delves deeper into each crime, while also looking at our changing attitudes to women who have found themselves at the centre of our darkest dramas.

With a foreword by barristers Jeremy Dein QC and Sasha Wass QC, Murder Mystery and My Family: An Innocent Woman offers fascinating tales of justice served and justice denied, a book both gripping and heartbreaking in equal measure.
