A painless one. Not a trace of blood. There wasn’t even a body.
But it was a poison true as arsenic: The poison of the human heart.
Award-winning and nationally best-selling author Margaret Frazer plunges into the darkest depths of the 15th century in this stunning tale of kings and witchcraft, revealing the hidden hand behind the throne of England. Join Queen Margaret and the Duke of Gloucester as they gamble for the fate of kingdoms in a tale woven out of Shakespeare’s Henry VI. Souls are placed at the stake, but will any of them see the true danger lurking in their midst before it’s too late?

Margaret Frazer is the award-winning author of more than twenty historical murder mysteries and novels. She makes her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, surrounded by her books, but she lives her life in the 1400s. In writing her Edgar-nominated Sister Frevisse (<em>The Novice's Tale</em>) and Player Joliffe (<em>A Play of Isaac</em>) novels she delves far inside medieval perceptions, seeking to look at medieval England more from its point of view than ours. "Because the pleasure of going thoroughly into otherwhen as well as otherwhere is one of the great pleasures in reading."
