The talented new voice of K.M. Pohlkamp brings meaning to historical fiction. I was swept away in this haunting tale of murder, politics, confession and complicated relationships. After reading this tale of poison, revenge, confession and power, you will ponder the idea that everything—even the vilest murder—can be forgiven.
Pohlkamp has brought to life a piece of history that captivated me with its unique flavor. Lavinia Maud is a Poison Master who bit into my soul even as I prayed for her to stop.
