Alma Rattenbury had her own bedroom. Her husband slept on a different floor. She could easily make excuses to go on daylong excursions with Percy, her chauffeur. She just had to be discreet. It seemed doable. But from the moment she took the plunge and became lover to her seventeen-year-old chauffeur, her tidy upper class life began spinning out of control, deceit displacing honesty, jealousy displacing trust - total chaos leading to the unimaginable . . . the most heartbreaking murder in British history. Based on true events, The Adulteress carries you into the world of a seemingly sophisticated woman who risks everything for a dream. However irresponsible that choice may have been, her story will leave you wondering just how much you would risk.
