Read during Spring 2005

A somewhat fictionalized account of the famous Victorian trial of Adelaide Bartlett for the murder of her husband. It's an interesting read but an odd mixture of a fiction mystery story and an account of the life and trail of Adelaide. He moves bewteen pure storytelling (from a wide variety of points of view) and a more documentary approach. I think I would have liked it more if it had been one of the two types alone. Interesting but I don't think I'd read it again so it heads to the BookCrossing pile.
