Nach dem großen Erfolg von Der Palast der Borgia öffnet Sarah Dunant erneut die schweren Palasttüren und lässt uns einen Blick auf die berüchtigtste Familie Italiens erhaschen. Es ist das Jahr 1502. Die Gerüchte um Lucrezia Borgia sind zahlreicher denn je, in den Straßen ganz Italiens hört man es raunen: von Lucrezias angeblicher Affäre mit ihrem Bruder Cesare, von der verbotenen Liebe zu ihrem Vater, dem Papst Alexander VI., von Mord und Orgien. Doch wo Lucrezia selbst auftaucht, verstummen die Stimmen – mit ihrer Anmut verzaubert sie die Höfe Italiens, mit ihrem Geschick verbirgt sie ihr dunkles Geheimnis: dass Cesare aus Eifersucht Lucrezias Ehemann ermordet hat, ihre große Liebe. Doch eine neue Stadt wartet auf sie, eine neue Liebe und das nächste gefährliche Spiel um Macht und Reichtum.
