Hot on the trail of the poisoner, Agatha is fearless, all the while unaware, that she's become the next victim....
Best cozy mystery I've read all summer, July 22, 2003 Reviewer: A reader from Chicago, IL I was so excited to discover M.C. Beaton's work this summer in her Agatha Raisin book entitled "The Quiche of Death". The book surprised me in its ability to keep me laughing and guessing at the identity of the murderer simultaneously. So many books in the mystery genre today are predictable and Beaton's book was refreshing in that it kept me guessing until the end. I am going to continue reading the rest of the series, as well as Beaton's newest series, to be introduced later this summer.
