A former journalist, Nupur Tustin relies upon a Ph.D. in Communication and an M.A. in English to orchestrate fictional mayhem. Childhood piano lessons and a 1903 Weber Upright share equal blame for her musical works.

One evening, a woman invited her husband, who was leaving her for a younger, more beautiful woman, for one last banquet. He ate with relish, only to discover the succulent meat he’d enjoyed came from the flesh of his own children.

Can you guess who we’re talking about?

Beautifully written and very evocative of the time period. I was reminded quite a bit of Amanda Carmack, one of my favorite authors, as I read Face Down Upon an Herbal. I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series.
