One Man's Poison...

As a writer of action-adventure stories, the nefarious schemes of ne'er-do-wells hold a particular fascination, for without the drama and jeopardy they inject into a situation the hero would have nothing to do.

However, to my knowledge I have never actually suggested someone actually ingest a poison themselves, unlike TV chef Antony Worrall Thompson (who, let's face it, should know better). In fact, in What is Myrrh Anyway? there is a warning against using an ingredient in a recipe that could cause harm.

So, the moral of this little story? Buy What is Myrrh Anyway? and don't trust that ginger-bearded guy off the telly! Do you think they'll be many bookings at his restaurant tonight?
