Avatar for Sharon M. Sharon M. said:
A historical thriller set in Renaissance Italy. This first novel features Francesca Giordano who takes over her father’s position as poisoner to Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia and vows to avenge father’s brutal death. Full of corruption and intrigue in the Church and the Borgia family, vivid with fascinating historical details and depictions of Roman life from St. Peter’s to the Jewish ghetto, this is a suspenseful read set in a fascinating time (and there’s a sequel!)
