Description

There may be trouble ahead . . . so will Agatha face the music?

Can the feisty Agatha cut it as a private investigator? She soon learns that running her own detective agency in the Cotswolds is not quite like starring in a Raymond Chandler movie. But then walks in wealthy divorcee Catherine Laggat-Brown, and Agatha is given her first real case. Death threats, blackmail and physical attack soon follow, and once again Agatha is off scouring the countryside for clues and showing friends and enemies alike what Raisin Investigations can do!


Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:

'A potent cocktail of satire, mystery and adventure that will leave you wanting more' Myshelf.com

'Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining, delightfully intolerant and oh so magnificently non-PC, M.C. Beaton has created a national treasure' Anne Robinson

'M.C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem' Publishers Weekly

'The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshing, sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine.' Booklist

Review quote

Agatha is like Miss Marple with a drinking problem, a pack-a-day habit and major man lust. In fact, I think she could be living my dream life. * Entertainment Weekly * `The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status.' -- Anne Robinson * The Times *

Her books have been translated into seventeen languages and her Agatha Raisin mysteries have been made into a Sky TV series starring Ashley Jensen. M. C. Beaton is consistently the most borrowed UK adult author in British libraries. She lives in a Cotswold village that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
