The Perfect Poison : Number 6 in series Paperback
by Amanda Quick
Part of the Arcane Society Series series
Plagued by rumours that she poisoned her fiance, Lucinda Bromley manages to live on the fringes of polite society, tending her beloved plants - and occasionally consulting on a murder investigation.
For the notorious botanist possesses a unique talent: she can detect almost any type of poison.
But the death of a lord has shaken Lucinda to her core.
At the murder scene, she picks up traces of a poison containing a very rare species of fern - stolen from her conservatory just last month.
To keep her name out of the investigation, and to find the murderer, Lucinda hires fellow Arcane Society member, Caleb Jones.
As a nearly overwhelming desire blooms between them, they are drawn into a deadly conspiracy that can be traced to the early days of the Arcane Society - and to a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the depths of his own tortured soul...
