Hmmm I enjoyed the non historical parts, I must say Some of the sections that were supposedly based on history had me gritting my teeth at times though I thought the author did a good job at bringing the horrendous states of English prisons alive to the reader Some historical facts that are extremely easy to find out she got wrong though They were small things, but detracted from the book for me For example, a number of times Kyle refers to the Duke of Suffolk and his sons that particu Hmmm I enjoyed the non historical parts, I must say Some of the sections tha
