I've read articles and books about Ruth Ellis before but this book lumps them all together and is up to the minute with updates etc I was staggered to learn that the book I have written by her sister is very selected to say the least I know Muriel was elderly when it was written but she got a lot of the facts mixed up it seemsThe author mention restoring David Blakely's character to him which I though was nice but felt she failed He has always come across as an arrogant toff who treated women like crap and this book did nothing to dispel my viewsI didn't enjoy the fact that it's one of those books where you are having to refer to notes every paragraph or so It makes for a very laboured and interrupted readReading about Ruth and her hostess pals brought to mind the rinsing girls we read of nowadays They were no different Her pal Jacueline was a real friend She never gave up on Ruth and I hope she appreciated herI knew her son's story and it's heartbreaking how he lived and died Sad too how Ruth covered up for Desmond I thought it ironic he died partly due to a neck dislocation I always had precious little sympathy for him I must say At least Ruth always maintained she was guilty and was than happy to accept her punishment The whole process regarding her execution was interesting and it describes the whole process inasmuch as it can be learned from people the author interviewedI like what Prison Officer Galilee wrote Ruth Ellis was first class

From the very opening of the book when the author takes us through the last day in the life of Ruth Ellis this is a totally gripping account of a tragic life Born in Rhyl in 1926 Ruth had a poverty stricken childhood which left her with a sense of ambition and a drive to succeed This book takes us through the years of WWII when Ruth first enjoyed a level of freedom and the admiration of men Unfortunately the man she most admired and loved a Canadian serviceman turned out to be married and left Ruth a single mother Undeterred Ruth began to work in clubs and found that she was successful at what she did After a failed marriage she again picked herself up this time with two children to support and went back to workIt is obvious from reading the life of Ruth Ellis that she was clearly the life of the party She was soon not only working in a club but managing one However she was also volatile and jealous She began 1953 with a successful job; gregarious ambitious and in control Yet this was the year she met David Blakely and her extreme love for him overshadowed her life from that point on Carol Ann Lee gives us not only the biography of Ruth Ellis but also that of David Blakely and is always scrupulously fair in her account about both Blakely was from a far privileged background his idea of 'being broke' was certainly not the real fear of poverty which Ellis knew all too well Although Blakely was happy to move in with Ellis and to spend her money he was also physically abusive and both his friends and family did not consider Ellis suitable for himThis fascinating account of a crime which caused divided opinions and a huge outcry both at the time and after is related in great detail and with obviously meticulous research We read of the crime itself and of the aftermath the trial how Ruth Ellis was viewed by the public and press and of how her death sentence helped change the law There is no doubt that Ruth Ellis killed David Blakely but certainly there are aspects of the case which would be viewed differently now The author shows that this was ultimately a tragedy between two very damaged people and you can only view the unfolding events with both horror and sympathy If you enjoy true crime books then this is one of the best
