“A historical thriller brimming with intrigue, action and enough double-crosses to stump even the most venal of Renaissance Popes . . . a fascinating page turner as delicious and deadly as the poisons brewed up by its heroine.”—Lauren Willig, bestselling author of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation, on Poison
Sara Poole lives in Connecticut, where her discovery of the abundance of deadly flora growing just beyond her doorstep prompted her interest in the poisoner’s art. Her novels include Poison, The Borgia Betrayal and The Borgia Mistress.
