About the Author
Elizabeth Fremantle is the acclaimed author of Sisters of Treason, Queen's Gambit, Watch the Lady, and The Poison Bed (also available from Pegasus Books) and she has contributed to Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, and the Sunday Times (London). She lives in London.
A riveting tale, giving us a new take on an old mystery, with her unique, accomplished skill. Her characters live, an age is evoked, and the story surges on with vivid pace. I cannot recommend this highly enough.--Alison Weir, New York Times bestselling author
Deliciously sinister. A toxic blend of glamour, intrigue, and ambition.--Andrew Taylor, author of 'The Fire Court'
A thoroughly compelling tale of sexually-charged intrigue and murder. Once started, impossible to put down.--Minette Walters
Gripping and fascinating. Fremantle is a master.--Santa Montefiore, author of 'The Daughters of Ireland'
Fremantle is one of the most electric writers working in the historical space today.
Rich in historical detail. Bound to please fans of court intrigue.
Set in England during the reign of James I, this craftily constructed historical from Fremantle makes deft use of a real-life crime. Fremantle does a masterly job of recreating the feel of the period, along with making the atmosphere of suspicion and plotting palpable. Readers will eagerly await her next historical.
Fremantle has taken the love story of Lady Frances Howard and Robert Carr in 1615 England and made it indelible. Fremantle's gift is in reimagining the emotions and circumstances of Frances and Robert. Will stick with you long after you turn the last page.
Engaging. The novel's depiction of the Jacobean age has the vivid, cleverly constructed and always faintly unreal quality of a stage set.-- (05/31/2019)
