Summary
Framed around one salacious trial in 1891 London, Jobb provides a fascinating and vividly told true-crime narrative about the hunt for one of the first known serial killers. Dr. Thomas Neil Cream used poison on vulnerable and desperate women, many who had turned to him for medical help. Cream's poisoning spree in the US, Canada, and England coincided with the birth of forensic science as well as the public's growing appetite for crime fiction. -- adapted from jacket
