About the book

Edinburgh, October 1679. Lady Christian Nimmo is arrested and charged with the murder of her lover, James Forrester. News of her imprisonment and subsequent trial is splashed across the broadsides, with headlines that leave little room for doubt: Adulteress. Whore. Murderess. Only a year before, Christian was leading a life of privilege and respectability. So, what led her to risk everything for an affair? And does that make her guilty of murder? She wasn't the only woman in Forrester's life, and certainly not the only one who might have had cause to wish him dead...

Kate Foster has been a national newspaper journalist for over twenty years and is the Health Editor for the Scottish Daily Mail. She wrote The Maiden on a Curtis Brown Creative six-month novel writing course. It subsequently won the Bloody Scotland Pitch Perfect 2020 prize for new writers, and most recently, The Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the year 2023. She lives near Edinburgh with her two children.
