Poisonous Elements

Reviewers’ Corner: The Elements of Murder: A History of Poison, by John Emsley. ‘Some mystery authors write their stories based on days of the week or letters of the alphabet, but John Emsley has a potentially richer source of inspiration: the periodic table. Emsley, who was a chemistry lecturer at London University, and is now the Science Writer in Residence at Cambridge University (both in the United Kingdom), has successfully mined Mendeleev’s table in at least nine previous works.’
