The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York ($10) is one of those fascinating reads that proves real life can be just as dramatic and entertaining as fiction. With chapters highlighting different types of toxic chemicals, from chloroform to arsenic, author Deborah Blum explores the emergence of forensic science and some of New York City's most famous twentieth-century murders-by-poison. The book has been so popular that PBS has already turned it into an American Experience Series film.
