'Infamous, I have become disowned, but I am one of your own' - Myra Hindley, from her unpublished autobiography
On 15 November 2002, Myra Hindley died in prison, one of the rare women whose crimes were deemed so indefensible that 'life' really did mean 'life'. She was without a doubt Britain's most notorious murderess, but who was the woman behind the headlines? How could a seemingly normal girl grow up to commit such terrible acts? Her defenders claim she fell under Ian Brady's spell, but is this the truth?
One of Your Own explores these questions and many others, drawing on a wide range of resources, including Hindley's own unseen writings, hundreds of recently released prison files, fresh interviews and extensive new research.
Scrupulously researched and compellingly well written, this book is the challenging, definitive biography of Britain's 'most hated woman'.
