On occasion www.kerriansnotebook.com crosses into the Nightstand Book Reviews realm. Many of you have shown a great interest in the various poisons used as a method of dispatching the victim(s) on the Kerrian’s Notebook site, so I thought you might like to have a list of 30 books with poison as the primary cause of death here on NBR. The authors and their fans provided the titles. The books were written/published after 2015, so there are no classics in the list, just relatively new ones to add to your TBR pile. Any post-2015 titles missing? Let us know in the comments below.

In River City Dead (January 2017) two people enjoying Fiesta on the San Antonio River Walk are dispatched by a unique method of poisoning in a hotel. Purely fictional, of course. River Walk hotels are wonderful!
In The Plunge (October 2018), 1st in the new spinnof series, Aggie Mundeen LAKE Mysteries, the killer attempts to silence the victim with a common drug, which given to a person who doesn't need it, proves fatal.
Ooooo! Thanks for letting us know, Nancy. I’m adding your titles to the list. 🙂
