- DescriptionTHE GOLDEN AGE OF POISONING The 19th Century is frequently regarded as the heyday of the poisoner. In the beginning to the middle of the nineteenth century, a poisoning panic engrossed the public imagination.

And, of these hundreds of poisonings, sixty percent involved women murderers. In this fascinating book, best selling author Sylvia Perrini, looks at serial women killers around the world in the 19th Century. Nearly all the cases, but t all, involve poisoning.
