Love, Sex and Murder in Victorian England

In 1875, the beautiful and vivacious Florence Ricardo married Charles Bravo, a dashing barrister. The marriage seemed a happy one, but one night, four months after the wedding, Bravo collapsed. For the next fifty-five hours, with some of London's most distinguished physicians in attendance, Charles suffered a slow and agonizing death. All the doctors agreed: Charles Bravo had been poisoned.
The dramatic investigation that followed was covered in sensational detail by the press. So great was public interest in the case that coverage of it eclipsed the prime minister's negotiations with Egyp, the Prince of Wales' Indian tour and the conflict in the Balkans. The finger of suspicion pointed at various times at suicide, at Mrs Cox the housekeeper, at George Griffiths, a stableman with a grudge, and at the remarkable figure of Florence Bravo herself.
*Death at the Priory* is a gripping historical reconstruction and a startling portrait of a woman, a marriage and a society. The brilliant conclusion uses new evidence discovered by the author to demonstrate conclusively who really murdered Charles Bravo.
James Ruddik is a journalist and television researcher.

The book is compiled very interesting with the widow Florence Ricardo's life and how she is doing with her much older lover and what happens then when she meets her new husband. Poor Florence choose the wrong husbands both times.
I like that there is a genuine cases of poisoning death happened in 1836 to the basic and all investigations journalist James Rudderick done and how he came to his conclusions.
