The Inheritor's Powder
In the early 19th century, arsenic was so frequently used by potential beneficiaries of wills that it was nicknamed 'the inheritor's powder.'

Then a suspicious death in 1833 led James Marsh, the brilliant chemist assigned to the case, to attempt to create a test that could pinpoint the presence of arsenic.
