Sea, sand - and the slammer for Agatha!
Agatha Raisin thinks she's in for a treat when her ex-husband James Lacey invites her on holiday but - horrors! - his idea of an idyllic break is the small, run-down resort of Burryhill-on-Sea. And from there on things go from bad to worse, so when a fellow guest in their hotel is found murdered, Agatha herself is chief suspect - and has to solve this case from a locked police cell!
Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:
'Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining . . . M. C. Beaton has created a national treasure' Anne Robinson
''M. C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem' Publishers Weekly
'An enchanting series . . . M. C. Beaton has a foolproof plot for the village mystery' New York Times Book Review
M.C. Beaton is the author of both the Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, as well as numerous Regency romances. Her Agatha Raisin books are currently being turned into a TV series on Sky. She lives in Paris and in a Cotswold village that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
