The U.K. edition was titled "Miss Mitchell." From the dust jacket- "This woman so full of evil, so tortuous, so cruelly refined in wickedness, so blandly unscrupulous that her fascinated victims could not escape her web. Addie Mitchell was a harmless-looking little middle-aged woman who had under a pleasant surface, the venom of her thwarted youth, a lust for power and mania for intrigue."
