"Harper’s facility with historical figures such as William Cecil, Robert Dudley, and the treacherous Duchess of Suffolk is extraordinary."
Los Angeles Times

"Harper masterfully captures the Elizabethan tone in both language and setting and gives life to some fascinating historical figures….Elizabethan history has never been this appealing."
New York Newsday

Don’t miss Karen Harper’s acclaimed debut novel in The Elizabeth I Mystery Series, The Poyson Garden:

"Impressively researched…the author has her poisons and her historical details down pat."
Los Angeles Times

"A walk side-by-side with one of history’s most dynamic characters."
— Anne Perry, author of Half Moon Street

"An entertaining cross between a swashbuckling historical romance and a mystery novel. The heroine is spunky, the courtiers scheme and truckle, capes swirl, daggers flash and horses gallop."
Portland Oregonian
