The ninth in the Agatha Raisin murder mysteries 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.
After losing her hair in her last adventure (Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham, LJ 4/1/99), Agatha retreats to a seaside resort to regrow it. She consults a witch for a hair tonic, which seems to work, but then someone murders the witch. More great fun from an endearing heroine. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
