Providing insights into the world of the chemical poisoner, this book brings together sensational cases from around the world. The case of Maybrick, Seddon and Armstrong are described, as well as lesser-known accounts such as that of Reverend Clarence Richeson who poisoned his young mistress with a cyanide capsule after convincing her it was an abortant. Sections review aspects of poison crimes, legal issues, forensic tests, autopsy, exhumation, pioneer toxicologists and the characteristics of poisoners.
