Poison Romance and Poison Mysteries a Gutenberg eBook

Poison Romance and Poison Mysteries
a Gutenberg eBook

My new project is Double 00 Books, a website dedicated to mysteries, espionage and crime books.

Mysterious chefs and murder by lethal food and drink are popular subjects for the Cozy genre.  The Washington Post restaurant critic and food section editor Phyllis Richman turned to mystery writing after retirement, writing as Chas Wheatley.

C.J.S. Thompson was a prolific writer, physician, collector and analyst of the chemical and toxic properties of food and drink.

His 1899 study Poison Romance and Poison Mysteries is an ebook available for free download through Gudenberg.org.  The ancient art of poison never goes out of style.
