No wonder she’s been crowned Queen of Cosy Crime’ Mail on Sunday

It can be hell in high water!

Drowned brides are like buses: nothing for ages, then two come along at the same time . . . ! Abandoned by husband James, Agatha hops on a plane to the South Pacific, hoping to mend her broken heart. But there she meets a happy honeymooning couple, for whom disaster strikes when, tragically, the bride drowns. Back home, alarm bells start ringing for Agatha when a woman, dressed in a wedding gown, is swept down river. The police say suicide, but Agatha, spurred on by recent memories, particularly her own disastrous marriage, sets out to prove them wrong.

Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:

‘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

‘Once started, you’ll have a job to put it down until you’ve finished’ Amazon reader, Kent

‘Another wonderful tale about Agatha and her chums … Long live Aggie!’ Bookworm, Essex

Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
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.
Anne Robinson, The Times
‘The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status.’
