MC Beaton: Mastermind of a Cotswold crimewave | The IndependentAt age 26 Agatha Raisin has already come a long way. She has clawed her way up since leaving the Birmingham slum where she was born.

Then her boss asks Agatha to go to the home of Sir Bryce Teller to tell him that he is soon to be arrested for the murder of his wife and that the agency no longer wants to represent him.

Certainly the best thing Agatha can do for her first client is to find out who really murdered his wife and clear his name. And with her wits and gumption, Agatha sets out to do just that.
