    What disappointed you about Poison?

    The characters weren't likable and the plot wasn't credible.


    What was most disappointing about Ed McBain’s story?

    The lead character had no cohesive philosophy, ethics, or rules of life. One minute he's upright-- an adult with character. Next he's acting like a baby, a fool and a man without a backbone.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    no


    What character would you cut from Poison?

    The opening detectives--their dialogue about the smell went on for way too long for no good reason.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is from the Mad Men era. People's attitudes have changed since then. The book is mired in the past.
