Publisher's Summary

1497, Renaissance Rome: As the teenage daughter of Pope Alexander VI, Lucrezia Borgia is a young noblewoman immersed in all the glamor of the Vatican Palace. Yet after a brutal killing shocks the city, Lucrezia learns that a dark truth lies beneath the surface of the Papal Court - in their ruthless quest for power, her father and brother are willing to poison their enemies.
Her family members are murderers.
After discovering that her new husband is next to die, Lucrezia struggles to help him escape from Rome before the assassins strike. Against a barrage of political intrigues, papal spies, and diabolical tricks, Lucrezia uses all her wits to defy her family and save her husband from assassination. But as tragedy looms ever closer, and her plans gradually fail, she finds herself confronting an enemy far more sinister than she ever imagined.

The Avid Listener

After a stunning TV series, I was keen to learn more about the life of Lucrezia Borgia. Whether this is embellished fiction interspersed with a bit of truth or the whole bloody truth, the fact is that I couldn't stop listening. Great

Pleasant but not gripping

The name Borgia conjures an image that isn't fulfilled by this book. It is historically inaccurate in many ways but if you take it as a piece of fiction it is a pleasant way to pass the time. There a couple of issues with editing but the narration is good.. Karen Savage manages the Italian names and places well.
