Product description

Review

"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 "Mystery Scene"

"A thoroughly compelling tale of sexually-charged intrigue and murder. Once started, impossible to put down."--Minette Walters "Publishers Weekly (starred)"

"A Jacobean Gone Girl--dark and deeply satisfying, The Poison Bed is a tale of monstrous intrigue and murder."--Miranda Carter, author of George, Nicholas, and Wilhelm "Mystery Scene"

"Deliciously sinister. A toxic blend of glamour, intrigue, and ambition."--Andrew Taylor, author of The Fire Court "Mystery Scene"

"Engaging. The novel's depiction of the Jacobean age has the vivid, cleverly constructed and always faintly unreal quality of a stage set."-- "New York Times Book Review"

"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."--Minette Walters "Mystery Scene"

"Fremantle is one of the most electric writers working in the historical space today."-- "CrimeReads"

"Gripping and fascinating. Fremantle is a master."--Santa Montefiore, author of The Daughters of Ireland "Mystery Scene"

"Like all the best writers of historical thrillers, Elizabeth Fremantle weaves together documented fact with sensitively imagined fiction to create a novel that helps us understand a time and place better. It doesn't matter if you guess whodunit, early or late. The tale is in the telling, and so is the readerly enjoyment. If your idea of a great summer read is closer to The Miniaturist than Gone Girl, I highly recommend The Poison Bed."-- "NPR"

"Rich in historical detail. Bound to please fans of court intrigue."-- "Booklist"
