Love, like hell, is a four-letter word for Agatha . . .
No happily ever after for her! Recently married to neighbour James Lacey, Agatha quickly finds that love is not all it’s cracked up to be – soon the newly-weds are living in separate cottages and accusing each other of infidelity. Then, after a fight down the local pub, James vanishes – a bloodstain the only clue to his fate. Naturally, Agatha is Suspect Number One. Determined to clear her name – and find her husband – Agatha begins her investigation and promptly discovers a murdered mistress . . .
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
‘The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status.’
Anne Robinson, The Times
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.
