The Secret Poisoner Selected for BBC Radio 2 Book Club

21 March 2016

We are thrilled to announce that The Secret Poisoner: A Century of Murder by Linda Stratmann has been chosen to be the next title in the BBC Radio 2 Book Club: Fact Not Fiction.

Combining archival research with a novelist’s eye, Stratmann, an expert in Victorian crime reveals the nineteenth century as a gruesome battleground where poisoners went head-to-head with toxicologists, criminologists, and society’s evolving legal infrastructure. For an extract from The Secret Poisoner as well as a special introduction to the book by author Linda Stratmann, visit the YaleBooks blog.

Following the announcement on 18th March, Stratmann will be interviewed on the BBC Radio 2 Arts Show with Jonathan Ross on Friday 25 March. Join the conversation on twitter using #SecretPoisoner.
