Product description

From the Inside Flap

Autumn, 1615. Celebrated couple Robert and Frances Carr are imprisoned on suspicion of murder.

SHE

has been rescued from an abusive marriage by Robert, and is determined to make a new life for herself. Whatever the price.

HE

has risen from nothing to become one of the country's most powerful men. But to get to the top, you cannot help making enemies.

Now a man is dead. And someone must pay with their life.

Frances knows the truth can kill. Robert knows a lie can set you free. Neither understands their marriage is a poisoned bed.

Review

Engaging, vivid and revelling in historical detail, this thriller delves into a notorious murder. The reversal comes in a double blow, the first of which is so cunningly done I found myself pausing, frowning and riffling back through the pages to confirm that I had, indeed, been thoroughly stitched up, Sarah Perry, bestselling author of The Essex Serpent

A twisting psychological thriller based on a real Jacobean murder. Unputdownable, The Times

A gripping historical thriller. Think Gone Girl with bodices. Brilliant, Glamour

A tale of intrigue and ambition, this is a rich and fascinating book -- ONE OF THE BEST RECENT CRIME NOVELS, The Guardian

A gripping page-turner that will have you awake long into the night. Ingenious, The Times

An intoxicating blend of intrigue, seduction, witchcraft and murder. The Poison Bed is beautifully told and impossible to put down -- Karen Perry

An electrifying, brilliantly executed thriller, Woman & Home

Gripping and fascinating. Fremantle is a master, Santa Montefiore

Who is to blame? And will they get away with it? A rollicking read, Heat

Immaculately detailed and atmospheric, this Jacobean mystery borrows from both the revenge tragedies and contemporary noir thriller to manipulate the reader. It is dark, clever and compulsive -- Elizabeth Buchan, Daily Mail --This text refers to the paperback edition.
