Not just an account of a murder and a trial this book also contains plenty of information about the development of forensic toxicology and includes other famous cases relevant to the subject.
Read beautifully and vivaciously by Patience Tomlinson.
I would highly recommend this book to fans of 'The Suspicions of Mr Wicher', 'The Invention of Murder' and 'A is for Arsenic'.

This could have been a great book. But it is continually interrupted with historical facts and explanations. While these are certainly interesting, I just wanted to hear about the murder and the “who done it” element!
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. The actual story line is minimal and filled with, what I could only describe as, Chemistry lessons.
What will your next listen be?
What does Patience Tomlinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Obviously an accomplished presenter .. not a lot to work with here though.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
Disappointing and not at all as expected.
