Agatha Christie's Poisons

Agatha Christie will always be the queen of whodunits. She published 65 murder mysteries in her lifetime, 30 of which featured poisons. Doctors and scientists were astonished at how accurate Christie's poisonings were, but she came by that honestly. She was a trained nurse and pharmacy assistant, using her skills during both World Wars. Her descriptions of the symptoms of poisoning leaked into the real world, and ended up solving real crimes! One book, The Pale Horse, helped solve at least three different cases of poisoning, one accidental and two which were crimes. Read about those cases, and about the many different poisons in Agatha Christie mysteries, at Ann Marie Ackermann's blog. -via Strange Company
