David Lindley re-examines the murder trials of Frances Howard and the historical representations of her as `wife, a witch, a murderess and a whore', challenging the assumptions that have constructed her as a model of female villainy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an acute, scrupulous, and at times disturbing analysis of the Overbury affair.' - Charles Nicholl, Times Literary Supplement

'His interdisciplinary approach, the new questions he has asked of family sources, and his recovery of neglected ones combine to make The Trials of Frances Howard the most stimulating and scholarly study yet published in the Overbury scandal.' - Alastair Bellany, The Huntingdon Library Quarterly

'By laying out for us the comment on one extraordinary woman [Lindley] sheds brilliant light how all women were perceived in early modern England.' - Diarmaid MacCulloch, New Statesman

'A spendid piece of cultural history, subtle, scholarly and very well written.' - The Observer
