TANYA BRETHERTON:
The Husband Poisoner

If you read history and true crime, you’ll enjoy this book about the chilling crime wave which saw women such as Caroline Grills and Yvonne Fletcher callously poison family members, using the household poison thallium, normally used to kill rats life in Sydney after World War II. Unlike other easily acquired poisons of the time, thallium was odourless and tasteless and victim’s deaths were initially attributed to natural causes. Find out what happened next.

“Bretherton is an excellent story teller…This book reads like good crime fiction with dialogue deployed to push the stories forward…. Those who enjoyed her previous volumes and those interested in some of our darker histories will quickly devour The Husband Poisoner. Although, you might want to make your own cup of tea! before curling up to do a bit of reading.” – The Conversation
