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.
