Amanda Whittington

Published by Nick Hern Books

1 Male 5 Female

A gripping drama set in the 1950s about Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, offering particularly strong female roles ...

A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth works in the kind of nightclub where there's more than just a drink on offer

The girls work hard, play hard and dream of fame and fortune

Then one night Ruth meets wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she falls in love

And with whom she becomes obsessed

Fame follows love - but not in the way she imagined

So why does their relationship end in murder?

Why does she plead Not Guilty but offer no defence?

Why does she show no remorse?

And who is she trying to protect?

The Thrill of Love dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines
