Mrs. Maybrick's Own Story: My Fifteen Lost Years (Expanded, Annotated) - Florence Elizabeth Maybrick Summary

A true story of an American woman arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to hang for the murder of her British husband. In its day, it was one of the most sensational cases of the 19th century. Here, Florence Maybrick tells of the horror and devastation of being separated from her children, thrown into solitary confinement, and struggling to maintain sanity. For fifteen years she struggled to hang on and gained a remarkable set of supporters on both sides of the Atlantic, including Lincoln's former secretary (later Secretary of State) John Hay. Queen Victoria herself was apprised of the proceedings, as was U.S. Ambassador to Britain, Robert Todd Lincoln. Mrs. Maybrick relates the saga of her ordeal and her final emancipation. She made an eloquent and impassioned appeal for prison reform. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

Trial of Mrs. Maybrick - Henry Brodribb Irving Summary

James Maybrick, a Liverpool cotton broker, died on 11th May, 1889. A suspicion had arisen in the minds of some of those attending Mr. Maybrick during his illness that his wife was attempting to poison him. She was arrested and tried for his murder at the Liverpool Assizes, convicted and sentenced to death on 7th August, 1889. This sentence was commuted by the Home Secretary to one of penal servitude for life. Mrs. Maybrick served fifteen years of imprisonment, and was released on 25th January, 1904. The justice of Mrs. Maybrick's conviction was gravely questioned at the time and has been the subject of criticism ever since.

The Poisoned LIfe of Mrs. Maybrick - Bernard Ryan Summary

If you were intrigued by the purported diary of Jack the Ripper or other books that have convinced experts that the notorious murderer was a Liverpool cotton broker named James Maybrick, read this true-crime biography of Maybrick’s wife. In 1889, in one of the great trials of history that produced major changes in English jurisprudence, she was tried, convicted, and sentenced to be hanged for Maybrick’s murder. This book takes you from the shipboard meeting of the 18-year-old American girl and the 42-year-old Englishman in 1881 to her death in 1941 as a lonely derelict whose past was unknown. You get details of the reprehensible treatment of Mrs. Maybrick by her husband’s family. You learn what happened when she weekended in London with Maybrick’s handsome associate. You watch as Maybrick succumbs to an arsenic diet. You discover why the press found her guilty before the trial, yet England’s leading barrister proved her not guilty in the public mind despite a hanging judge and jury. You learn the details of the uproar that followed, the last-minute-before-hanging commutation to imprisonment, the 15-year trans-Atlantic effort to get her released, her return to America and acclamation, and her years as "the cat woman" in a tiny cabin in rural Connecticut.

The Master Criminal - Fred Merrick White Summary

"The history of famous detectives, imaginary and otherwise, has frequently been written, but the history of a famous criminal-never. "This is a bold statement, but a true one all the same. The most notorious of rascals know that sooner or later they will be found out, and therefore they plan their lives accordingly. But they are always found out in the end. And yet there must be many colossal rascals who have lived and died apparently in the odour of sanctity. Such a character would be quite new to fiction, and herein I propose to attempt the history of the Sherlock Holmes of malefactors.

Encyclopedia of World Crime - Jay Robert Nash Summary

Jay Robert Nash knows crime, not speculatively or academically but reportorially, at the level of the most intense and thorough investigative journalism. Some 50,000 entries in six volumes range from biblical times through 1988, and include a dictionary volume and an index volume. The entries present the most notable and important international criminal cases, persons, places, and events, as well as important persons in the fields of law enforcement, criminal justice, the judiciary, criminology, forensic medicine, pathology, penology, and criminal psychiatry and psychology. They also cover works of drama, fiction, film, poetry, and song, explaining the real-life role models for such works. Nash does fall prey to some common and insidious myths: his dictionary, for example, lists anarchism, anarcho-syndicalism, and anarchy, but not capitalism, which is clearly more intimately (i.e. structurally) and extensively connected with crime and criminality. But the areas he knows, he knows better than just about anyone else. Note: this is a continuity series encyclopedia, offering annual editions, the year 1989 to be covered in CrimeBook's 1990 annual. Published by CrimeBooks, Inc., 1213 Wilmette Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091. Libraries and schools order from the distributor, Marshall Cavendish.
