The league of lady poisoners


“This lavishly illustrated book by Lisa Perrin introduces more than 25 infamous women poisoners, exploring the circumstances and skill sets that led them to lives of crime. Learn about popular poisons throughout history and their deadly effects, and explore the common motives that drove these women to commit their dastardly deeds. You might find yourself rooting for some of them-like Sally Bassett, who helped poison her granddaughter’s enslavers in Bermuda, or the Angel Makers of Nagyrév, who helped women get rid of their abusive husbands. Other stories, though-including that of Yiya Murano, one of Argentina’s most notorious swindlers and serial killers, or the terrifying Nurse Jane Toppan-may prove less palatable”–.
