About the Author

Vincent Marks went to Oxford on a scholarship to study medicine just after the Second World War. He became a world authority on hypoglycaemia early in his career, during which he was Professor of Clinical Biochemistry at the University of Surrey in Guildford, where he was also Dean of the Science Faculty and Founder of the Medical School. He is one of the pioneers of immunoassay and founder of the biotech company, ClifMar Associates, amongst others. He is a former President of the Association for Clinical Biochemistry and former Vice-President of The Royal College of Pathologists. He is one of the world's leading authorities on the measurement of insulin and has extensive specialist knowledge of medical research, including clinical chemistry and nutrition. Investigators worldwide call upon his expertise whenever a crime, or suspected crime, involves insulin or hypoglycaemia. Caroline Richmond has had three careers: as a laboratory scientist in pharmacology and neurosciences; as a book editor; and as a science writer and medical journalist. She is a respected obituary writer for the British Medical Journal, The Independent and The Guardian, and also writes for the The Oldie magazine. She founded HealthWatch, which campaigns for evidence-based medicine.


One of the creepiest crime books I have ever read.
Daily Telegraph, 2007

An enthralling series of true-life murder case studies
Mail on Sunday, 2007

5 Stars: A really fun read
This is all the fun of reading the very worst gruesome gory details of a murder ... Anyone who feels science isn't fun should read this book. The book really does make science come alive.

Amazon customer review, Jul 2007

5 Stars: Creepy, clinical crimes
The cases themselves are creepy and sometimes gruesome, and will appeal to anyone interested in true crime stories. Any would-be murderers considering the use of insulin should consider alternative techniques ...

Amazon customer review, Aug 2007

4 Stars: Highly technical, fascinating book
Very good read that relates many interesting and notorious cases of murders by insulin injection detected by forensic scientists, including the first author. The book is also a salutary reminder of how over-confidence in faulty scientific tests can lead to miscarriages of justice.
