By Elizabeth Jenkins


Harriet Ogilvy is a young woman with a small fortune and a mental disability, making her the ideal target for the handsome and scheming Lewis Oman. After winning Harriet's love, Lewis, with the help of his brother and mistress, sets in motion a plan of unspeakable cruelty and evil to get his hands on her money. Based on the real-life 1877 case of Harriet Staunton, Elizabeth Jenkins transforms the bare facts from the annals of Victorian England's Old Bailey into a spine-chilling exploration of the depths of human depravity.
