Kathy Wow! This sounds incredible!

Margaret I could not resist picking up the copy and reading the description, I had to borrow it and when it comes time to hand it back I may be on the lookout for a copy of my own.

Kathy If you like this, try "The Poisoner's Handbook" by Deborah Blum. It's a great non-fiction look at the development of forensic toxicology during Jazz Age New York. One of the best pieces of non-fiction I've ever read.

I'm definitely going to have to look for this. I might have to have the local library get it through inter-library loan as I doubt they'll actually have it here.

Kathy A bit disappointing???

Margaret It was, it wasn't terrible but it just was not as interesting as I hoped for.
