By 1322, Mathilde of Westminster was considered the finest physician in London. But in her years as lady-in-waiting to Princess Isabella, wife of the feckless Edward II, she was drawn into the murky politics of the English court, where sudden, mysterious death was part of life. Many years later, Mathilde looks back and chronicles her turbulent past. A host of chilling murders and personal danger confronts her. The source of these horrors is the fierce political rivalry between Philip of France and Edward of England which manifests itself in a series of gruesome killings. The first of a new series, THE CUP OF GHOSTS is played out against the glorious, violent and decadent court of Edward II where ghosts throng, and old sins and innocent bloody cry to heaven for vengeance.
