Praise

Praise for Tremors in the Blood:
“[A] fascinating look at the history of lie detectors . . . Katwala has real storytelling chops.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A lively, engrossing combination of true crime, biography, and history.”
Booklist

“Rollicking true-crime . . . fast-paced and elegant and fun.”
WIRED

Tremors in the Blood, Amit Katwala’s beautifully told origin story of the lie detector, contains just about everything a reader wants in a true crime book – murder, mystery, gunfights, courtroom theatrics and dogged police work – along with a solid exploration of the ethically troubling issues that continue to haunt criminal justice and its sometimes dubious tools.”
—Deborah Blum, bestselling author of The Poisoner’s Handbook

“Gripping . . . I was hooked.”
—Sirin Kale, feature writer for The Guardian

“Katwala manages to bring history alive.”
—Chris Stokel-Walker, author of TikTok Boom and YouTubers

“A gripping, forensically detailed account that reads more like a mystery than history.”
—Angela Saini, author of Superior and Inferior
