She and her lover Robert Clayton and their friend Norman Andrews had been found guilty of the murder of 73 year-old SP bookmaker Pop Kent at Carlton in 1949.

Researched over nine years, the meticulous detail of Jean Lee - the last woman hanged in Australia shatters assumptions surrounding one the centuries most legally contentious cases.
