An Evening of Victorian Murder, Arsenic and Intrigue with Historian Kate Colquhoun

In the summer of 1889, young Southern belle Florence Maybrick stood trial for the alleged arsenic poisoning of her much older husband, Liverpool cotton merchant James Maybrick. 'The Maybrick Mystery' had all the makings of a sensation: gossiping servants, infidelity, rumours of gambling & debt. The case shocked and excited the Victorian public in equal measure, gripping the city of Liverpool and the nation alike. In this best selling book, historian Kate Colquhoun recounts an utterly absorbing tale of addiction, deception and adultery.
