Product description

Review

Beloved Poison is a marvellous, vivid book with a thoughtful, engaging protagonist at its centre - and a fascinating story to tell. It's immaculately researched and breathtakingly dark. Elaine Thomson's descriptive powers are so great that that I was surprised to see twenty-first century London rather than grimy, smelly St Saviour's around me when I - eventually - looked up from its pages (Janet Ellis, author of The Butcher’s Hook)

You can almost feel the evil miasma rising from the page (Kirkus Reviews)

This outstanding debut historical enthrals with its meticulously researched details (Library Journal)

From the first page to the last, I enjoyed every brilliantly written, and often hideous, detail ... A splendid read (Cambridge Magazine)

Here's a tale of Victorian London to freeze your blood on a cold winter's night (Alex Gordon Evening Telegraph)

A historical novel to be savoured (Lesley McDowell The National)

ES Thompson's Jem Flockhart books are the best I've read in years. Jem is just my kind of heroine: scarred, smart, complex, and unapologetically queer (Kirsty Logan, author of The Gracekeepers ) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

E. S. Thomson's work has been longlisted for the CWA Endeavour Historical Dagger, and shortlisted for the Saltire Prize, the Scottish Arts Council First Book Award and the William McIlvanney Crime Book of the Year Award. She has a PhD in the social history of medicine, and tries to fit as much medical history into her books as possible. She works as a university lecturer by day, and writes by night. Elaine lives in Edinburgh with her two sons. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
