The queen of cosy crime has returned. To celebrate Agatha Raisin's 30th adventure, we’re giving one lucky winner and a friend the chance to win afternoon tea with M.C. Beaton in Harrogate along with two tickets to M.C Beaton’s event at the Harrogate Crime Festival on Friday 19th July. We're also including overnight accommodation in Harrogate. And, 10 runners-up will win a signed copy of Beaton's new book, Agatha Raisin: Beating About the Bush.
Private detective, Agatha Raisin, has many quirks, one of which is her tendency to exclaim "what a good place to dump a body!" every time she drives along a motorway bordered by dense woodland. And she's clearly not the only one to think this. The police realise the same is true when poor, elderly Mrs. Dunwiddy is found dead in the scrub by the road leading out of Mircester.
Agatha digs into the case, facing off with everyone from secretive factory bosses to Russian officials as she wades deeper into the mystery surrounding the killing. And, as if things weren't complicated enough, Agatha finds herself grappling with intensifying feelings for her friend and occasional lover, Sir Charles Fraith. Will Agatha get her man at last? Or will the killer get her first?
