About the Author

Caroline Jowett is a journalist and former Arts and Literary Editor of the Daily Express where she has written about everything from badgers to ballet, etiquette to Italy. She's been a fan of the eighteenth century since discovering the work of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer and loves the period's sheer exuberance for life. She later discovered that the complexity of its history is even more beguiling than the fiction of its novels. When not writing about the Georgians she is working on a novel of her own.


"Caroline Jowett describes one of the most famous and at the same time most infamous of Britain's jails, from the 1100s to 1904, when it was finally decommissioned. An amazing, entertaining and informative book!"--Books Monthly
"This is a highly readable and accessible account, not only of the iconic institution, but also of the history of crime and punishment. It is packed full of evocative detail and is essential reading for all those interested in crime history."-- (07/01/2017)
"Read it for: glimpses into Newgate life over the course of seven centuries"--Your Family History (05/01/2017)
