READ: The Poisoner’s Handbook

If you’re into murder mysteries and history, you’ll devour The Poisoner’s Handbook by Deborah Blum. An incredibly interesting look at the history of poison, particularly as used in murders, from the early twentieth century. Even more fascinating is the history of the development and rise of forensic science, particularly in conjunction with solving crimes. You also get a deep look into the corruption and ignorance behind the prohibition of alcohol and the devastating rise in deaths from the consumption of illegal alcohol due to the misguided Prohibition laws and enforcement.

Check out The Poisoner’s Handbook.
