In these grisly tales from the gallows, guillotine and gas chamber the fairer sex get it in the neck. You have been warned. From the Yorkshire Witch, who was accused of murder when a potion for good health turned out to be fatal, to the woman who survived the gallows and took her empty coffin away with her, Amazing True Stories of Female Executions is brimming with macabre true stories of executed women from around the world. Interspersed with quirky last requests, and with black and white illustrations throughout, this is history at its most morbidly fascinating.
Geoffrey Abbott served for many years as a Yeoman Warder (Beefeater) at the Tower of London. Author of 16 books including the bestselling The Executioner Always Chops Twice and contributor to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, he has made numerous television appearances.
