A marriage. A murder. One of them will hang for it.

Autumn, 1615.

Frances Carr is imprisoned in a cold, lightless room.

She is accused of murder.

In a cell nearby is her co-accused - her husband Robert.

Kept apart, Frances can only tell her side of the story.

How did she come to be here?

Can she somehow prove her innocence?

And what lengths will she go to to save herself?

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
