A great book for writer's who want to dabble in killing off a character. This book tells you everything you need to know and much more. Get it bought, you won't be sorry. But just to be on the safe side I keep mine out of the way of my partner, just in case he gets any......ideas.

So you are thinking of poisoning someone? I really do not suggest poisoning people or animals as the way forward to resolve problems in your life. Think it but do not do it. please note this bit.

Okay it is broken in to chapters about types of poisons. Plants, animals and chemical pills and house hold things. Useful but admittedly American in authorship so if you live elsewhere the world use it as a jumping off point and check.

For those who are writing yes it useful indeed it tells you at the back what the poisons look like and how they can be administered.

Nice set out and nicely written pithy and to the point. For fiction and story use if you are writing an essay or something more substantial just read it to get a point to start off.

Again I have to state do not go around poisoning things... good glossary and bibliography.

An excelent reference source regarding everything to do with poisons, invaluable to mystery authors. There are many chapters covering a wide area, from actual poisons themselves to poisonous plants and animals, medicines and many more. This book truly deserves five stars, however, I have had to mark it down. The reason for this is the poor, frozen, contents section from where I am only able to access the first five chapters. The kindle contents page will not budge, whatever I try to do. This will make it rather tiresome in future, whenever I need to use it as a reference. The author must urgently modify the contents section in order to facilitate the accessing process.

A flimsy cover and cheapness in feel; but hooray for the contents!!
Every poisonous substance listed in great detail, readable prose, this is no medical journal.
If you are fascinated by this kind of thing, then buy this book- It's not for scholars of this subject.
It's for us who read Agatha Christie!

Bought this on a whim as a last minute gift for my mum as she likes her crime stories ect! Far better than I thought! Came quick, packaged great and such a good read! Am ordering one for myself next payday!!! Even my boyfriend who isn't a big reader can't wait to have a gander! Really educational, looks great and just an interesting read all round :)!

Great book for writers, lots of information on where the poison can be found, how it can be used, what effect it has on the victim and whether it can be detected. Very useful reference book - just don't put it on a bookshelf where family and friends can see - you may get some strange looks!

As a budding author of murder mysteries, this book was full of information. It was thicker than I had imagined and well worth the money. Delivered on time and was wrapped securely.
