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 Englands long forgotten criminals and some of its most notorious offer us a glimpse of society as it once was.See all Product description
