Product description


"Poisoned Lives exposes fascinating details and is written with evident relish." -- The Guardian, March 6, 2004

"Poisoned Lives is a well-written and meticulously researched account of desperate lives and desperate measures." -- The Sunday Telegraph, January 18 2004

From the Author

The poisoners of the past – the wretched poor, servants, those who had little hope and few options, the depressed and disaffected, ordinary people neglected by society until they did something that could not be ignored – they were all of their time. The remarkable lives of some of England’s long forgotten criminals – and some of its most notorious – offer us a glimpse of society as it once was.
