A Date with Death
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, and 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 name 'Lady Jane'. A date with death 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 predatos - 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 folloes Andrew's doomed odyssey that begins within the walls of Buckingham Palace and carries her - and the author - around the globe, through the roal adventures, as she falls under the spell of her mistress' charm, strange supernatural obsessions, and passion.
