Product description

Review

A creepy and powerfully immersive retelling of one of the greatest scandals of the Jacobean court . . . The Poison Bed is unerringly addictive. Fremantle's writing has a dynamic quality and an immediacy that draws readers in, whether or not they're familiar with the material of the story (Marylebone Journal)

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 electrifying, brilliantly executed thriller (Woman & Home)

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

Exquisite. The reveal is terrifying (Toby Clements)

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)

A Jacobean Gone Girl! Dark and deeply satisfying, The Poison Bed is a tale of monstrous intrigue and murder (M J Carter)

Book Description

The most powerful man in England, his lover and his lover's wife. One is a killer.
