A fine day for a hanging : the Ruth Ellis story

Lee, Carol Ann2012
Books, Manuscripts
In 1955, Ruth Ellis shot dead her lover, David Blakely. After a trial that lasted less than two days, she was found guilty and sentenced to death, becoming the last woman to be hanged in Britain. Despite her infamy, Ruth's story has never been fully told. Here, Carol Ann Lee examines the facts without agenda or sensation.
