Beschreibung des Verlags
Sea, sand - and the slammer for Agatha!
Agatha Raisin thinks she's in for a treat when her ex-husband James Lacey invites her on holiday but - horrors! - his idea of an idyllic break is the small, run-down resort of Burryhill-on-Sea. And from there on things go from bad to worse, so when a fellow guest in their hotel is found murdered, Agatha herself is chief suspect - and has to solve this case from a locked police cell!
Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:
'Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining . . . M. C. Beaton has created a national treasure.' Anne Robinson
''M. C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem.' Publishers Weekly
'An enchanting series . . . M. C. Beaton has a foolproof plot for the village mystery.' New York Times Book Review
In bestseller Beaton's mildly entertaining 17th Agatha Raisin mystery (after 2005's The Perfect Paragon), Agatha still carries a torch for her ex-husband, James Lacey, who invites her on holiday after moving back to the cottage next door to hers in the small English village of Carsely. Unfortunately, the surprise destination is a rundown British seaside town, Snoth-on-Sea, where a fellow guest at their hotel is murdered, strangled with Agatha's scarf. Before Agatha can make much headway in her investigation, two more guests are killed. More engaging than the crime solving the underdeveloped victims and suspects are hard to tell apart, let alone care about is the back-and-forth between Agatha and James. Driven by Agatha's strong personality, this predictable cozy will please devoted fans, but is unlikely to win new readers.
