Stylish, clever, and utterly heartless...
     --The Daily Mail

The perfect crime committed by two perfect amateurs.

In 1946, in post-war London, a chance meeting between the flamboyant Antonia Ashton and the shy Rose Bell, sets off a tortuous chain of events. Both of them are unhappily married, but the headstrong Antonia has a pragmatic solution to their problem: murder. On a crowded underground platform, she pushes Rose's husband to his death. And she doesn't think it too much to ask Rose to return the favor... Based on the novel by Peter Lovesey, Dead Gorgeous stars Helen McCrory (Anna Karenina, The Jury) and Fay Ripley (Cold Feet).
