A Gripping Tale,
This review is from: The Inheritor's Powder: A Cautionary Tale of Poison, Betrayal and Greed (Hardcover)
The Inheritor's Powder is a gripping tale of mystery and suspense that won't allow you to put it down until the very last page. Hempel tells the story of George Boodle, an extremely wealthy farmer who was mysteriously poisoned in his family home. Tension mounts as the wave of hysteria surrounding the dreaded Arsenic poisoning gathers momentum.
Meanwhile, a previously unknown chemist attempts to prove the presence of the fatal powder within its victims' bodies.
Hempel's fabulously colourful and graphic description throughout leave you convinced that you have witnessed the horrors first hand.
A truly wonderful read.
