This towering, enthralling novel is unlike anything you've read before - you will step back into time, to the 15th day of February, 1550, to see a murder done by a villainess who has bewitched the centuries.
In Feverhsam, 400 odd years ago, Mistress Alice Arden and her lover were charged with the murder of her husband. All England was stunned at the crime: the accomplices tried seven times to kill Arden, before they did it with a dagger's blow.
Was Alice Arden truly the devil's child, a silken seductress, a murdering whore? Or was she, as some said, "A good and gentle lady, much ill-used?"
What were the unearthly powers of this beautiful woman, so that even the Lord Lieutentant of Kent fell under her spell and prepared to rescue her from the stake?
