Details

Poisons are used frequently in Agatha Christie’s stories, testament to her lifelong interest in toxicology. Fourteen of her poisons are analysed in this book, from arsenic (Murder is Easy) to veronal (Lord Edgware Dies). Harkup provides information on their chemical composition, the tests which can detect them, their lethal effects on the body and the uses to which they have been put, particularly in the real-life murder cases that may have inspired Christie.
