About this title

Synopsis:

'It's no accident my sister carried the can. That murder was organised like a military exercise by experts. Ruth was hand-picked. And she shielded those people who'd picked her ...the ones who promised her she wouldn't die.' Muriel Jakubait, sister of Ruth Ellis Who was the mysterious 'third man' who pulled the trigger? Ruth Ellis was the last woman to be hanged in Britain, convicted 50 years ago for shooting her lover David Blakely. The case became notorious and was made into a successful film, Dance with a Stranger. The story that has held ever since is of a peroxided tart who killed her man out of jealousy. But crucial questions were left unasked in the original trial, and the whole case reeks of an Establishment cover-up. Ruth Ellis's sister, Muriel, knew her better than anyone and has always sought to prove she was not guilty. Now she is able to reveal crucial evidence about how a third man pulled the trigger for the fatal shots. A man who was part of a web of British secret agents into which Ruth Ellis fell long before. And at the heart of these new findings is the startling evidence that Ruth was being run by Dr Stephen Ward, at least a decade before his name became public in the infamous Profumo Affair. Muriel reveals the full story about her and her sister's abused childhood. She shows Ruth as somebody damaged at a very early age - who strove to make something of herself, only to be caught up in something much bigger and end up paying with her life.

About the Author:

Muriel Jakubait last saw her sister through a wire grille in a tiny visiting room inside the Condemned Unit at Holloway prison. She supported the recent appeal against the 1955 verdict, but was keenly aware at the time that key evidence was still not being made public. She says, 'Now is the time for the truth to be told. The public has the right to know.' Monica Weller is a freelance writer and photographer.
