Description

In the eighteenth century it was criminally easy to bump off unwanted relatives. 1833, wealthy landlord, George Bodle is taken violently ill. He dies within hours. When his wife, daughter and two maids are also taken ill, there is only one terrifying explanation ...arsenic poisoning. A murder most foul, yet, while arsenic was readily available over the counter in the 1800's, poisoning was almost impossible to prove. As the evidence mounted up, a picture emerged of bitter family rivalries, brewing resentment, greed and ill-will. Sandra Hempel tells the story of the birth of toxicology - the science of poison - and of a mystery which gripped the nation.
