Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death
M. C. Beaton
High-flying public relations supremo Agatha Raisin has decided to take early retirement. She’s off to make a new life in a picture-perfect Cotswold village. To make friends, she enters the local quiche-making competition – and to make quite sure of first prize she secretly pays a visit to a London deli.
Alas, the competition judge succumbs after tasting her perfect quiche, and Agatha is revealed as a cheat and potential poisoner. Definitely not the best start. So Agatha must turn amateur sleuth – she’s absolutely got to track down the real killer!
Agatha Raisin is as much of a national treasure as Miss Marple or Poirot, but with PR nouse and a mild drinking problem. This story of deadly baking and sinister village goings-on is incredibly entertaining and witty and will charm reluctant readers.
