A British nobleman; a prominent lawyer; a renowned physician; and a famed judge of Her Majesty’s court—all marked for murder. But by whom, and why? The only clue is a mysterious green flower, which holds the secret to a diabolical plan of revenge; one whose thorny roots plunge deep into the long buried past. Its mastermind, an exquisite living corpse of a youth, in whose icy veins poison flows. Here is an erotic tale of a supernatural settling of scores, set in the absinthe-tinged hothouse era of late-Victorian decadence. One ripe with intrigue, suspense, and horror, interwoven with forbidden passions and unrequited desires that will stir the blood of any reader.
Advance Praise for The Arsenic Flower:
If you’re looking for a darkly captivating read, one that's wholly original yet seems to be channeling the spirits of both Oscar Wilde and Charles Baudelaire, The Arsenic Flower is a bit of truly decadent, wicked fun. It’s macabre, delicious...and compulsively readable...a journey through the darkest regions of the human heart. --Rick R. Reed, two-time EPIC eBook award-winner and author of A Face Without A Heart, published by Bristlecone Pine Press
