Books
In 1973, Myra Hindley, the most notorious woman in Britain, is serving a life sentence for the moors murders - a case that shocked the world. Behind bars she has fallen in love. When Hindley is refused parole she persuades a sympathetic prison officer and former nun to help her break out of London's grim Holloway prison. The women plan to run away together to Brazil. 20 years after Hindley's death, this extraordinary true story is brought to life by Howard Sounes, drawing on unseen prison files and new interviews with former Holloway inmates, prison officers and detectives.
