Ninety-two-year-old Cape Cod poet Victoria Trumbell is waiting for her granddaughter Elizabeth, the assistant harbormaster, to return when she hears a scream from across the harbor.
Deadly Nightshade, from all outward appearances, is a typical New England cozy, complete with local characters: a group of medi-van riders that appear several times, much like a Greek chorus, a retired professor with questionable wealth, a local Gay Head Indian to add color, and plenty of lobster.
Plaguing this bucolic setting is the tough talking Domingo, who is many times a caricature of himself (calling Victoria "sweetheart", Elizabeth "you" and his wife "woman").

Toxins are nearly always proteins that are capable of causing disease on contact or absorption with body tissues by interacting with biological macromolecules such as enzymes or cellular receptors.
Toxins vary greatly in their severity, ranging from usually minor and acute (as in a bee sting) to almost immediately deadly (as in botulinum toxin).
Biotoxins vary greatly in purpose and mechanism, and can be highly complex (the venom of the cone snail contains dozens of small proteins, each targeting a specific nerve channel or receptor), or relatively small protein.
