Why did Agatha Christie use poison so often to dispatch characters, and why do their poisons of choice provide such important clues to the identity of the murderer? Kathryn Harkup explores the fascinating background to the novelist’s detailed chemical knowledge, illustrated by the use of poisons in her classic crime novels.


A is for Arsenic will be a fascinating talk, exploring why certain chemicals kill, how they interact with the body, and the feasibility of obtaining, administering, and detecting these killer compounds.

 

Approx. duration: 1 hour
