The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status
A Beaton novel is like The Archers on speed
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
M.C. Beaton has done it again. My favourite laugh aloud crimevillage crime author has, I think, a slightly darker touch in this latest offering, and it's still wonderful.
