'The Killing of Louisa follows the tradition of Burial Rites and Alias Grace, with one woman unfairly sent to death by men in the judiciary. This novel provides a creative re-imagining of colonial Australia, rich with historical detail and high drama.' Queensland Literary Awards judges' comments
'Like listening to a ghost of the past, The Killing of Louisa performs an incredible act of ventriloquism. Janet Lee inhabits the heart and soul of Louisa and makes her speak again. While her story is devastating, I could scarcely drag my eyes away. Louisa has a fragile beauty that made me feel protective of her. I wanted to reach inside the pages and call for calm before someone got hurt. But someone does get hurt and the story of how it happened will haunt you for a long time.' Rohan Wilson, author of The Roving Party
'The Killing of Louisa tells of the last days of an unconventional woman imprisoned, tried multiple times, and finally convicted for the murders of two husbands and a son with rat poison, a case built on flimsy circumstantial evidence. Lee's meticulously researched recreation of Louisa's own testimony is an authentic and compelling read; this is a superb debut.' Melissa Ashley, author of The Birdman's Wife--This text refers to the paperback edition.
