In the summer of 1952, the eminent biochemist, Sir Jack Drummond, was in France on holiday with his wife, Anne, and their 10-year-old daughter. While camping in Provence, they were attacked in the middle of the night. Anne was shot as she slept. Drummond struggled with her killer, but was shot too. Their daughter managed to run a hundred yards before she was caught and her skull crushed by the butt of the same gun that had killed her parents.

Reviews

'Deftly put together and compelling written, Fergusson interweaves an intriguing real-life murder mystery with the short, shameful history of the agrochemical industry that has made unwitting guinea pigs of us all.' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'An intriguing and thought-provoking historical whodunnit that investigates the sinister roots of our 21st-century toxic legacy.' Joanna Blythman 'Thought-provoking and frightening in turns, but most of all utterly brilliant - This is an important book: read it and weep, and then get very, very angry.' Tim Smit, Director, Eden Project
