Poison Principle

I found this book, The Poison Principle by Gail Bell, a bit incoherent: the author jumped around with anecdotes and famous poisonings in history while unfortunately allowing the thread of interest held by the mysterious deaths of her two uncles (as children) to weaken.

It was only that I'd made it through 90% of the book that I thought I might as well finish it. This could have been a very interesting book, given the material, but it turned into a bit of a hotch-potch. I didn't find it particularly well-written or engaging.

It would fit into two of my categories if I'm doing the LT challenge: memoir and non-fiction.
