Reviews

"[Albee's] light tone makes this morbid, well-researched study a sinister indulgence."--Booklist starred review

"A compelling, entertaining, and informative introduction to a sinister aspect of human history." Kirkus Reviews

"There's plenty of material here to delight fans of [Georgia] Bragg's popular How They Croaked." --The Bulletin

"Ideal for readers, including reluctant ones, who delight in the science and scare factor of poisons or grotesque medicine." --School Library Journal
