Broadmore Revealed: Victorian Crime and the Lunatic Asylum - Mark Stevens

Some good stories about the asylum, covering many different aspects including female prisoners, escapees, and some of the real loonys. Not a bad read. I really liked the lady who tried to poinson loads of people in Brighton by sneaking poison chocolates into the local sweet shop.
Could have made a better job of providing a feel for life inside the place though.
