A king, his lover and his lover's wife. One is a killer.
In the autumn of 1615 scandal rocks the Jacobean court when a celebrated couple are imprisoned on suspicion of murder. She is young, captivating and from a notorious family. He is one of the richest and most powerful men in the kingdom.
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.
Who is telling the truth? Who has the most to lose? And who is willing to commit murder?
Based on the true story of a murder and scandal that rocked the court of James I to its foundations, THE POISON BED exposes a Jacobean world of political and sexual corruption drawing modern-day parallels.
