Commemorative edition of the first Agatha Raisin mystery from bestselling author M. C. Beaton, who sadly passed away last year
Revenge is a dish best served warm...
High-flying public relations supremo Agatha Raisin has decided to take early retirement. She's off to make a new life in a picture-perfect Cotswold village. To make friends, she enters the local quiche-making competition - and to make quite sure of first prize she secretly pays a visit to a London deli.
Alas, the competition judge succumbs after tasting her perfect quiche, and Agatha is revealed as a cheat and potential poisoner. Definitely not the best start. So Agatha must turn amateur sleuth - she's absolutely got to track down the real killer and clear her name!
Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:
'Full of perfectly pitched interest, intrigue, and charm' Lee Child
'M. C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem' Publishers Weekly
'Irresistible, unputdownable, a joy' Anne Robinson
Loved this funny/sad obnoxious woman everything she said and did had meaning usually with hidden agenda. It's the first book I've read of Agatha Raisin and I think it possibly her first but will be definitely reading more. Good books are hard to find( ones I like ) so I'm very pleased my niece recommended this author.
