"The irascible but endearing personality of Agatha Raisin is like a heady dash of curry. May we have another serving, please?"
DETROIT FREE PRESS
Agatha has moved to a picture-book English village and wants to get in the swing. So she buys herself a quiche for the village quiche-making contest and is more than alarmed when it kills a judge. Hot on the trail of the poisoner, Agatha is fearless, all the while unaware, that she's become the next victim....

KT, September 2, 2011 (view all comments by KT)
Agatha Raisin decided to sell her public relations business in London and take an early retirement so she bought a lovely thatched cottage in the idyllic Cotswolds. In order to be noticed immediately Agatha enters a baking contest. But because she has absolutely no kitchen skills Agatha buys a quiche and submits it under her name. The judge dies after eating her poisoned quiche and she gains the attention of the entire village. Now she has to prove her innocence. The plot is well-crafted but it is the writing that shines. The witty dialog and descriptions are wonderful. Plenty of gin & tonic, adultery, and British village habits. Agatha Raisin is an assertive self-made success. An opportunist. A stocky 50 something woman with good legs that enjoys her cigarettes. I am very happy to see that there are about two dozen Agatha Raisin novels to be enjoyed.
