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!

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.
