Mary Beth Keane
SOON TO BE A MAJOR BBC AMERICA SERIES, STARRING ELISABETH MOSS
Typhoid Mary: a selfish monster, or a hounded innocent?
They called her Typhoid Mary. They believed she was sick, that she was passing typhoid fever from her hands to the food that she served. They said she should have known.
But Mary wasn’t sick. She hadn’t done anything wrong.
She wasn’t arrested right away. There were warnings. Requests. And when she was finally taken, she did not go quietly. Branded a murderer and condemned by press and public alike, Mary continued to fight for her freedom, no matter the cost…
Fever casts a brilliant light over the life of a figure once described as ‘the most dangerous woman in America’, and Mary Beth Keane’s fictional account is as fiercely compelling as Typhoid Mary herself.
