Lead Review

  • Book: Wedlock: How Georgian Britain’s Worst Husband Met His Match
  • Location: County Durham, Northumberland
  • Author: Wendy Moore



‘Wedlock is meticulously researched and Moore, mistress of suspense, writes in the gripping language of a thriller so the pages flash past. This book has it all – the blackest of villains, the strongest of friendship, kidnap, abortions, riches and all completely true. Ripe for film adaptation.’ Katie Toms, Observer
‘This lurid tale of high-society sadism grips from the first page.’ (INDEPENDENT )
