Review

Beloved Poison is a marvellous, vivid book with a thoughtful, engaging protagonist at its centre - and a fascinating story to tell. It's immaculately researched and breathtakingly dark. Elaine Thomson's descriptive powers are so great that that I was surprised to see twenty-first century London rather than grimy, smelly St Saviour's around me when I - eventually - looked up from its pages (Janet Ellis, author of The Butcher’s Hook)

Beloved Poison is a marvellous, vivid book with a thoughtful, engaging protagonist at its centre - and a fascinating story to tell. It's immaculately researched and breathtakingly dark. Elaine Thomson's descriptive powers are so great that that I was surprised to see twenty-first century London rather than grimy, smelly St Saviour's around me when I - eventually - looked up from its pages (Janet Ellis, author of The Butcher’s Hook )

Following on from the events of acclaimed debut Beloved Poison, Dark Asylum vividly portrays the Gothic horror and questionable science of Victorian mental asylums in chilling detail. Meticulously researched and masterfully plotted, E.S. Thomson has written a complex, harrowing and highly enjoyable tale (Daily Express)

Dark Asylum positively oozes gothic menace, and the author's evocation of the city at that time is visceral and engagingly morbid . . . A first class piece of historical crime writing (Doug Johnstone Big Issue)

Here's a tale of Victorian London to freeze your blood on a cold winter's night (Alex Gordon Evening Telegraph on Beloved Poison)

You can almost feel the evil miasma rising from the page (Kirkus Reviews on Beloved Poison)

This outstanding debut historical enthrals with its meticulously researched details (Library Journal on Beloved Poison)

From the first page to the last, I enjoyed every brilliantly written, and often hideous, detail ... A splendid read (Cambridge Magazine on Beloved Poison)

A historical novel to be savoured (Lesley McDowell The National on Beloved Poison)

Meticulously researched and masterfully plotted, E S Thomson has written a complex, harrowing and highly enjoyable tale. (Daily Express)

Book Description

Set in a crumbling Victorian asylum where a gruesome murder is committed, this novel deals with the early 'science' of brain study and lobotomy, as well as giving a chilling insight into the asylum's workings, inmates and doctors, many of whom are more insane than their poor patients.
