A Poison Tree launches officially and with much merriment on 12th May. There will be singing, dancing and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. A modicum of lewd behaviour will be tolerated - just on this one occasion, you understand.
"You kill my wife and I'll kill yours." You must admit, as a proposition, it has an alluring symmetry to it.
It is 1999, and as the Millennium approaches, old certainties wither. For family man, David Braddock, his hitherto predictable world is undergoing a slow collapse. The people closest to him seem suddenly different. As desires and aspirations tangle around each other like parasite stems, betrayal is in the air.
And so is murder.
Fans of Braddock will finally learn the sequence of events that drove him into exile in Asia, while for new readers, ‘A Poison Tree’ is the perfect introduction to the ‘Time, Blood and Karma’ series.
