Before the Poison by Peter Robinson

Before the PoisonReviewed by Vickie Dailey

After movie music composer Chris Lowndes’ wife dies, he moves back to England, purchasing Kilnsgate house sight unseen. After meeting Heather, his real-estate agent he learns that it was the sight of a “famous” murder that has ties to his childhood. Grace Fox was hung for posioning her husband. Chris embarks on a journey through the past to prove Grace’s innocence of the crime. The chapters of the book are interspersed with trial notes and later with excerpts of Grace’s own journal.

Although the murder took place 60 years ago, there are still key players alive that help Chris piece together the puzzle including Grace’s own grandaughter, who holds the most important key to Grace’s inner thoughts – her journal.

While the solution presented is not what Chris imagined it would be, all that we learn about Grace during Chris’ investigation makes sense. The final solution also brings a peace to Chris’ life bringing into perspective his wife’s death.
