Poisoning is a mainstay of the cozy genre and with good reason. In Agatha Christie’s Cards on the Table, she served up two dastardly deaths by poison - one man killed with an injection of anesthetic and another by applying Bacillus anthracis to the victim's shaving brush. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle used a poisoned thorn to dispatch a victim in The Sign of Four. This method of making a character very dead, or, at the least have a very bad day, has its fans amongst writers everywhere but how does one find out more about poison and how to effectively use it in a novel or short story?
Join Triangle Sisters in Crime on Saturday, April 10th from 1:30PM – 3:00PM for a discussion on all things poison with Luci Zahray, The Poison Lady! Luci is a retired hospital pharmacist and avid mystery reader who has all of the details you need on what poison is, where to find them, factors that affect how fast they work, and she will do a general discussion of the ever popular, arsenic poison.
