"...a fantasy of outlaw women..."
She needed to feed her family. They wanted to kill theirs.
In 17th century Paris, the rich live in a different world from the poor, and women of all classes live on the whims of men. But poison is the secret lubrication on the gears of Paris society: poison-makers are the favorite artisans of the rich and their laboratories the only places where women from all levels of society meet. Madame Bosse could have been a great doctor, but instead must make poisons to feed her family. Monsieur Reynie, Paris chief of police, claims to only want justice, but their battle of will and wit will expose the truth: that justice is only for the rich and powerful.
