A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie (Bloomsbury Sigma)

People are excited about homicide. the recognition of homicide secret books, television sequence, or even board video games exhibits that there's an urge for food for dying, and the more odd or macabre the strategy, the higher. With gunshots or stabbings the reason for dying is apparent, yet poisons are inherently extra mysterious. How are a few compounds so lethal in such tiny amounts?

Agatha Christie used poison to kill her characters extra usually than the other crime fiction author. The poison used to be a relevant a part of the unconventional, and her selection of lethal elements used to be faraway from random; the chemical and physiological features of every poison offer very important clues to the invention of the assassin. Christie tested her large chemical wisdom (much of it gleaned through operating in a pharmacy in the course of either international wars) in lots of of her novels, yet this is often not often preferred by means of the reader.

Written via former examine chemist Kathryn Harkup, every one bankruptcy takes a distinct novel and investigates the poison utilized by the assassin. truth- and fun-packed, A is for Arsenic seems to be at why definite chemical substances kill, how they have interaction with the physique, and the feasibility of acquiring, administering, and detecting those poisons, either whilst Christie used to be writing and today.
