Can you solve "the prize puzzle of British criminal jurisprudence"?

In 1876 London was riveted by the dramatic poisoning of a young barrister and the sordid revelations that emerged about his household. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll review the baffling case of Charles Bravo's murder, which Agatha Christie called "one of the most mysterious poisoning cases ever recorded."

We'll also get an update on career possibilities for garden hermits and puzzle over how the police know that a shooting death is not a homicide.
