Poison: A History: An Account of the Deadly Art and Its Most Infamous Practitioners

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

A CHILLING CABINET OF POISON



Cases of intentional poisoning have probably been going on since early humans discovered that a sour aftertaste wasn't the only consequence of snacking on belladonna, but in the 21st century the art of the poisoner remains just as creepy, secret, and horribly fascinating as ever. This book lifts the lid on 30 notorious cases--riveting accounts ranging from Roman poisoning epidemics through the shocking antics of toxic aristocrats in 16th-century Florence and 17th-century Versailles, all the way up to the murder of Alexander Litvinenko by means of a polonium-laced cup of tea in 2006. Plus we've included a timeline on fashions in poison, and a top-20 identifier--to help you steer clear.



The book will be divided into five chapters in chronological order, taking us from 399BCE to the present day.
