Agatha Raisin: Something Borrowed, Someone Dead

Agatha Raisin: Something Borrowed, Someone Dead

Incomer Gloria French is at first welcomed in the Cotswold village of Piddlebury. She seems like a do-gooder par excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she has a bad habit of borrowing things and not giving them back, so when she is discovered dead, poisoned by a bottle of elderberry wine, folk in the village don’t mourn her passing too intently.

Parish councillor Jerry Tarrant hires Agatha Raisin to track down the murderer. But the village is creepy and secretive and the residents don’t seem to want Agatha to find who the murderer is, and Agatha’s investigations are hampered by the emotional upset of finding her ex, James Lacey, has fallen in love with young detective Toni Gilmour.

And now the murderer is targeting Agatha!

Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:

‘M.C. Beaton’s imperfect heroine is an absolute gem’ Publishers Weekly

Reviews

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