Needless to say, I became a mystery fan as well. That’s why I was so pleased to find, The Poisoner’s Handbook by Deborah Blum. Sometimes it’s fun to read about the history of things like forensic medicine and Ms. Blum certainly makes it so. You can read excerpts and other fun things, here or here and yes, even here.
If you enjoy the history of the Jazz Age, New York, CSI or Law and Order this is definitely a book that you should consider picking up.
