UP THE DOSE!
Long before the action of vegetable and mineral substances on human beings and animals was known, it is probable that poisonous bodies in some form were used by primitive man.
Poisons have been the murderer’s friend for thousands of years. Often regarded as the lady’s – or doctor’s – weapon of choice, they were employed for committing the ultimate crime.
Nowadays they still are, with names like strychnine, thallium, cyanide and the ever-present rat poison; every conceivable fatal concoction is included in this broad collection of authentic tales of the poisoner’s artform.
So sit down and relax, and have a mild (or intense, depending on your constitution) dose of this “Poison”: a broad collection of poison-related essays by C.J.S. Thompson.
