In the autumn of 1615, scandal rocks the Jacobean court, when a celebrated couple, Robert and Frances Carr, are imprisoned on suspicion of murder. Frances has been rescued from an abusive marriage by Robert, and is determined to make a new life for herself. Robert has risen from nothing to become one of the country’s most powerful men. But to get to the top, you cannot help making enemies. Some believe she is innocent; others think her wicked or insane. He claims no knowledge of the murder. The king suspects them both, though it is his secret at stake. Now a man is dead. And someone must pay with their life. Who is telling the truth? Who has the most to lose? And who is willing to commit murder?
