K.M. Pohlkamp’s gothic story becomes darker as Lavinia’s ambition leads her on a journey from which there can be no return. Her experiments are unhindered by concern for her victims, and she admits the poisoner’s reward is the look of surprised understanding in the eyes of a doomed victim. Written in the first person, the atmospheric undertones and fast pace make this a book which is hard to put down.

As an avid reader and writer of historic fiction there aren’t too many topics which surprise me. Pohlkamp’s tale of Lavinia Maud, Poison Master of the 16th century, drew me in and tossed me around. Could I really side with a murderess? Hope that the stubborn priest would hear her confession? The suspense of this tale had me looking over my shoulder for the ghosts of her victims.
