Poison and shooting and hacking, oh, my! Follow the ghastly crimes of three Victorian-era murders, and the murderesses behind them. Did Lydia Sherman really give arsenic to eleven of her family members? Was Lulu Prince temporarily insane, or just a gifted actress? And did the husband of Frankie Stewart Silver deserve his bloody end? (Probably, but don't try it at home.)
Volume 1 also includes three delicious thematic recipes for those who like to mix a little seasoning with their macabre.
