Argues that Napoleon was the victim of arsenic poisoning and speculates about who was his murderer
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The history books say that Napoleon died of natural causes. Napoleon himself, expiring at 51 after a lifetime of robust health, suspected otherwise and ordered a thorough autopsy. His suspicions were well-founded. So clever was the crime, however, that until recent developments in forensic science, it was impossible to prove a case of murder, let alone name the killer. Now, the authors of this fascinating book assert, it has been done--by a brilliant man whose 20-year inquest, a feat of detection, has produced one of history's greatest surprises.About the Author:
