About this product
- DescriptionInsulin Murders is the first book on the market to describe real life cases of murder (and purported murder) using insulin (and other hypoglycaemic agents) as a murder weapon. Written by a leading authority on insulin and its use as a murder weapon, this is a gripping account of true life crime, intended for doctors and laypeople alike. Insulin Murders is a unique collection of real life tales and includes details of the evidence that proved the incence of Claus von Bulow, played by Jeremy Irons in the well kwn Hollywood film about the case, Reversal of Fortune, in the first criminal trial ever to be televised in the US. Insulin Murders is written by Vincent Marks, author of the well-kwn and critically acclaimed Panic Nation and world authority on insulin, and Caroline Richmond, a well kwn medical journalist and writer, with a foreword by Nick Ross, journalist and broadcaster. It will appeal to both the medical and n-medical communities, and especially to all those with an interest in forensic medicine or true life crime.

He became a world authority on hypoglycaemia early in his career, during which he was Professor of Clinical Biochemistry at the University of Surrey in Guildford, where he was also Dean of the Science Faculty and Founder of theMedicalSchool. He is one of the pioneers of immunoassay and founder of the biotech company, ClifMar Associates, amongst others. He is a former President of the Association for Clinical Biochemistry and former Vice-President of The Royal College of Pathologists. He is one of the world's leading authorities on the measurement of insulin and has extensive specialist knowledge of medical research, including clinical chemistry and nutrition. Investigators worldwide call upon his expertise whenever a crime, or suspected crime, involves insulin or hypoglycaemia. Caroline Richmond has had three careers: as a laboratory scientist in pharmacology and neurosciences; as a book editor; and as a science writer and medical journalist. She is a respected obituary writer for the British Medical Journal, The Independent and The Guardian, and also writes for the The Oldie magazine. She founded HealthWatch, which campaigns for evidence-based medicine.
