Pressestimmen"It will be one of the main points of reference for historians of poisoning (the list of primary sources is particularly useful), and will, one suspects, be a useful read for historians of forensic science. The meticulous depiction of poisoners from the eighteenth century to the present day is complemented by overarching discussions of the increasing capacity of the scientific detection of poison in the body; the methods, motivations, and opportunities for poisoning; and the impact these cases had on public conceptions of female crime and femininity itself." Barry Godfrey, Victorian Studies, Autumn 2007--Sanford Lakoff
