Reviews

"Concise, clear and thorough, it [City of Light, City of Poison] is a highly readable and even gripping account..." -- Historical Novel Society "The best books of this type - of which City of Light, City of Poison is undoubtedly one - combine the narrative energy of crime fiction with the faintly prurient nature of true crime and the academic persistence of the specialist historian." -- Times Higher Education "It [City of Light, City of Poison is excellent material for a romp... it is never less than gripping and enjoyable, animated by Tucker's eye for detail and the gruesomeness of events." -- The Sunday Telegraph "Tucker is an assiduous researcher and a serious historian, but she also uses her imagination in the style of a novelist...[she] provides a splendidly detailed and at times disgusting picture of the criminal underworld of Paris, and of Madame Voisin and her collaborators." -- Literary Review
