On a whim, Agatha Raisin decides to leave London to taste the delights of an early retirement in a peaceful village of the Costwolds, where she soon becomes bored. Showing her blue-ribbon skills at the parish’s cooking contest should make her popular. But at the first bite of his beautiful quiche, the referee of the competition collapses and Agatha must reveal the bitter truth: she bought the quiche fatal at a caterer. To exculpate themselves, one solution: get your hands dirty and unmask the murderer herself.
Agatha Raisin is a Miss Marple today. A fifties who is not cold, smokes like a fireman and drinks dry. Unscrupulous, pugnacious, both exasperating and touching, she will make you die of laughter!
