Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Murder by poison alarmed, enthralled, and in many ways encapsulated the Victorian age. Combining archival research with a novelist’s eye, an expert in Victorian crime reveals the nineteenth century as a gruesome battleground where poisoners went head-to-head with toxicologists, criminologists, and society’s evolving legal infrastructure.
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

'I love Linda Stratmann’s non fiction work. This is a beautifully researched and written history of poisoners - so vivid you can see yourself there on every page.' - Peter James, author of You're Dead

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
