I'm sorry to break the news to you, but Agatha Christie is dead. In fact, despite the numerous TV and film adaptations that adorn our screen every year the woman has been dead for over 30 years and counting. No more new adventures from lovable Miss Marple or eccentric Monsieur Poirot, just the same stories told again with a different set of actors.

The Quiche of Death is the first book in the Agatha Raisin series. I read the first part on the Internet and thought it would be a good read and different to what I usually read so I bought it. The plot is basically that Agatha Raisin retires from her highflying PR job in London to a small village in the Cotswolds. This has been her dream, however once it actually comes true, she finds herself bored stupid, and subsequently just to do something, she enters a quiche competition.

Being the first book in the Agatha Raisin series by M.C Beaton it is this books job to capture the readers attention and captivate them into reading more of the books in the series. This book captured my imagination from the off, it is a very gripping novel and you want to know more as soon as you start reading. You want to find out why and how the person was killed and how the detective can solves the crimes by blundering in on various situations. It is also a humerous read and you can really relate to Agatha the main character in the novels. The book is worth every penny that I paid on amazon, however I did at first rent the book from the library and the enjoyment of .. Read the complete review
