Anne Green can't move a muscle, can't open her eyes, can't scream. She lies paralyzed in absolute darkness, terrified by her final memory - being hanged. Is she in purgatory? Hell? Was she buried alive? An innocent woman caught up in a nightmare, Anne Green is trapped with her racing thoughts, her burning need to revisit the events - and the man - that led her to the scaffold.

Meanwhile, a shy young medical student attends his first dissection and notices something strange as the doctors prepare their tools...Did her eyelids just flutter? Could this corpse be alive?

Haunting, thrilling, and impossible to put down, Newes from the Dead is based on the true story of the real Anne Green, a servant who survived a hanging in 1650 England only to awaken on the dissection table. Newes from the Dead concludes with an excerpt from an original 1651 document that recounts this chilling medical phenomenon. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gaye | 2/20/2014

    " While the story moves along slowly, it's fascinating and emotional! Based on a true story, I think Hooper did a great job building the characters around the event. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 2/14/2014

    " Hanged for a crime she did not commit---died and then wasn't dead anymore----and the story is true! It was pretty interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maren | 2/10/2014

    " Well done book about the true story of Anne Green who was hanged and "came back to life" (or perhaps never died). I liked the way the author fleshed out the story with period details to make it seem more real, and made sure at the end to note that they were fictional. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Holt | 1/24/2014

    " This story definately kept me interested. The suspense that built up while waiting to find out if she would wake up or not added to the greatness of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/4/2014

    " A book based on an actual event: in 1651, a young English woman was convicted and hanged for the crime of infanticide.....except she didn't die. This book tells the story and does a good job. It kept my interest and I learned a lot about British law and the lower classes during that time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elle | 1/2/2014

    " Most fantastic book I have ever read. I love this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/31/2013

    " Really liked the concept. Kept my interest throughout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 12/31/2013

    " I wanted to like this more than I did. A quick read, but a little dry. It seemed to reflect the language of the time (although I'm certainly not an expert) but didn't grab me the way I thought this story could have. I mean, the girl was wrongly accused, hung, and did not die. That's exciting! But the narrative, unfortunately, wasn't. I did like the alternating points of view, though, from the girl and the apprentice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy Hubbard | 12/2/2013

    " Creepy fun! I am a lover of historical fiction. "

    " Newes From The Dead id a very good read once you get past the old english.I suggest all of you read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 11/26/2013

    " WONDERFULLY TOLD - i liked the switching off of chapters between her and the scholar. this story was a capitivating true story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddie | 11/25/2013

    " This was a great book I couldn't put down. And there aren't many of those books for me. "

    " Unusual - very strong start. Weaker ending "

    " I really enjoyed reading this book, however, it is very spooky to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 5/19/2012

    " read this book while sitting at the hospital getting registered for surgery. Possibly not the best setting for reading it. "

    " this book was really good. i would recommend it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 6/28/2011

    " Hanged as a witch (and innocent) ... but did not die. Supposedly based on a true story. Interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna | 1/4/2011

    " An intriguing concept poorly executed. Not to mention the girl blames herself for essentially being coerced into sex, and she is never corrected. "
