"a gripping psychological thriller"

This page-turner takes a true story from the Jacobean court and turns it into a gripping psychological thriller. A courtier has been murdered and two people are being held in the Tower of London. The first suspect is Robert Carr, the pretty favourite of James I; the second is his wife, the beautiful Frances Howard. Each tells their own story, but one is the culprit and must be lying. Readers will be awake deep into the night, trying to untangle the truth.
