In 1887, Elizabeth Berry, an attractive young nurse from the grim Oldham workhouse, found notoriety throughout the nation after the death of her daughter, perceived by many to be the cruellest of murders. There were many who protested her innocence in the affair, but there were also suspicions surrounding another death related to the nurse: that of her mother. Suddenly Elizabeth Berry's dark story began appearing darker still. Was she in fact a coldblooded serial killer? For the first time we discover the true story behind this infamous case of the first woman to be hanged at Liverpool's Walton Prison and one of the Victorian period's most harrowing set of homicides.
