The execution of Ruth Ellis caused a sensation; it was instrumental in the ending of the death penalty in England, and the glamorous world surrounding the murderess and victim gripped the British public. Here, Ellis' daughter gives a portrait of the last woman in England to be hanged. She reveals the seedy world of escort agencies, Soho speakeasys and sex that lured Ruth Ellis into a wild and dangerous world. She also reveals how her own life came to mirror that of her mother's, tells the truth behind her affairs with such stars as George Best and actor Richard Harris, and discusses the shame and trauma of living with her mother's infamy.
