A non fiction book by

 
 



Linda Calvey has been married four times, and all four times she has ended up a widow.



Growing up after the war in the East End of London, Linda fell in with local gangsters including the KraysFreddie Forman and Ronnie Cook.

And in 1990, the so-called 'Black Widow' was convicted of killing her lover Cook. She served a double sentence because she wouldn't confess.

Her 18 years behind bars made her Britain's longest serving female prisoner. She moved to 14 different prisons during her time inside, sharing a prison with Rose West and Myra Hindley.

Since her release she has led a quiet, low-key life marrying a local businessman called George. Sadly George too is now dead...
