Softcover. We have a morbid fascination of murder by poison. The crime is usually premeditated, often with detailed planning needed to administer the poison without suspicion either to the victim or to the subsequent investigators. Death may take weeks or months as the poison slowly takes hold. In past times the penalty of death was almost always invoked for such heartless crimes. The author recounts stories of true crime and local history, dealing specifically with the murders around Norwich and Norfolk. The book covers 15 or so actual crimes from the heyday of poisoning - the 19th-century - introducing us to the murderers, their victims and the investigations, based on contemporary reports, trial records and gallows broadsheets. Illus. 128pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
