A Date With Death Zusammenfassung

A Date With Death Alan Starkie

In autumn 2000 the world was shocked by a brutal murder perpetrated by Jane Andrews, the former royal dresser and eight-year confidante of the Duchess of York. The half-naked victim was discovered in bed, clubbed to death, then stabbed through the heart, his bedroom door mysteriously tied shut. A three-day international search resulted in the arrest and sensational trial of the woman whose mock-royal mannerisms earned her the title of "Lady Jane". This is the inside story, told by a fellow member of the Duchess' "inner-circle". It describes the journey of corruption that transformed an innocent servant from Grimsby into a perverted imitation of how she saw her mistress - a calculating, social-climbing sexual predator - and, ultimately, a killer. The book explores the psychological metamorphosis in which Andrew's malleable mind was so altered that she took on a new and dangerous persona. The book follows Andrew's doomed odyssey that begins within the walls of Buckingham Palace and carries her - and the author - around the globe, through royal adventures, as she falls under the spell of her mistress' charm, strange supernatural obsessions, and insatiable passions. At the same time the book reveals insights into the world of a royal courtier at a time when the monarchy faced some of its greatest challenges. This is more than a royal story, and much more than a murder drama - it is the story of a modern Cinderella who tries to cling onto her prince after he removes the glass slipper. It is a tale of unfulfilled longings, tempestuous passions, and fatal consequence.
