Agatha waltzes into yet another murder investigation in the fifteenth book in the series, complete with brand new cover design.
M.C. Beaton was born in Scotland. She worked for many years as a journalist on Fleet Street. As well as the bestselling Agatha Raisin series, she is the author of the acclaimed Hamish Macbeth mysteries. She divides her time between the Cotswolds, where she lives in a village very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely, and Paris.
Now ensconced in the Cotswolds village of Carsely, wealthy middle-aged amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin discovers that opening a detective agency isn't as easy as it seems in M.C. Beaton's The Deadly Dance: An Agatha Raisin Mystery, the improbably plotted 15th installment in this English cozy series. Whether deliberate, accidental or unspoken, miscommunication rules-an insistent theme that won't deter Beaton fans but is unlikely to win new readers. Agent, Barbara Lowenstein.

Finally, Raisin opens her own detective agency! Beaton, a native Scot, authors the Hamish Macbeth mysteries and also writes under the name Marion Chesney. (See Hasty Death, p. 64) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
