M. C. BEATON    Book Number: 88283    Product format: Hardback

'Agatha is like Miss Marple with a drinking problem, a pack-a-day habit and a major man lust.' Pure joy, these detective novels have reached cult status, and here is Agatha Raisin, private detective, in her 30th adventure. She comes across a severed leg in a roadside hedge, and it looks like she is about to become involved in a particularly gruesome murder. Looks, however, can be deceiving, as Agatha discovers when she is employed to investigate a case of industrial espionage at a factory where nothing is quite what it seems. The factory mystery soon turns to murder and a bad-tempered donkey makes Agatha into a national celebrity before bringing her ridicule and shame. To add to her woes, Agatha finds herself grappling with growing feelings for her friend and occasional lover, Sir Charles Fraith. Then as a possible solution to the factory murder unfolds, her own life is thrown into deadly peril. Will Agatha get her man at last or will the killer get her first? By the master of black comedy we all love this imperfect, irrepressible, romance-hungry heroine, Cotswold based and with a penchant for G&Ts and cigarettes. 238pp in glamorous hardback with fairly large print.
