Synopsis

Agatha Raisin: Dishing the Dirt by M. C. Beaton

When therapist Jil Davent moves into the village of Carsely, Agatha Raisin is not a fan. Not only is the therapist romancing her ex-husband James but she digs up details of Agatha's rather unsavoury origins; details she is happy to share with all in the village. Furthermore, Jill is counselling a woman, Gwen Simple, Agatha is convinced is a murderess - although she has no actual proof. Not one to keep her feelings to herself, Agatha tells anyone who cares to listen that Jill is a charlatan who is better off dead. So she can only sigh with relief when Jill takes offices in the nearby town of Mircester. But then Jill is found strangled to death in her offices two days later and Agatha is the prime suspect! So, together with the detectives in her agency, she must prove her innocence and find the real culprit - before the murderer ensures that it's Agatha who's left pushing up the daisies!

Reviews

'The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status.' Anne Robinson The Times

'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.' Entertainment Weekly

About the Author

M. C. Beaton

M. C. Beaton is the renowned bestselling author of the Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
