Summary
On the night of October 3rd 1922, as Edith and her husband Percy were walking home from the theatre, a man sprang out of the darkness and stabbed Percy to death. The assailant was Frederick Bywaters. When the police learnt of his relationship with Thompson, Edith - who had denied knowledge of her husband's assailant - was arrested as his accomplice. Her love letters to Bywaters, read out at the ensuing trial, sealed her fate. Edith and Frederick were hanged for the murder of Percy Thompson in January 1923. Freddy was demonstrably guilty; but was Edith truly so? In shattering detail and with masterful emotional insight, Laura Thompson here charts the course of a liaison with thrice-fatal consequences, and investigates what a troubling case tells us about perceptions of women in early 20th-century Britain
