Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:
'M. C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem.' Publishers Weekly
'The detective novels of M. C. Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status.' The Times
'Being a cranky, middle-aged female myself, I found Agatha charming!' Amazon customer review
'I dream of being able to speak out like Aggie . . . she's a heroine!' A. Lucas, Essex, reader 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.
