It's been 40 years since Dame Agatha Christie's death, and in that time, reviewers have often bestowed her mantle on new authors. M.C. Beaton is one of those so honored, and she deserves it. When it comes to artfully constructed puzzle plots and charming settings, Beaton serves it up…this is a classic British cozy plot, and a setting done with panache. Maybe M.C. Beaton really is the new 'Queen of Crime.' (The Globe & Mail)
It is always fun to read an Agatha Raisin mystery, but the latest installment freshens up a delightful series by converting the heroine from amateur sleuth to professional without changing her caustic wit. Agatha remains crude and rude even to clients, but also retains that vulnerability that endears her to readers. (Midwest Book Review)
A very satisfying change for the smart woman of mystery with a new cast of colorfully realized characters blending with a few old favorites. (Mystery Lovers Bookshop)
The story was first-rate and moved along with many twists and turns that kept me always guessing…I read this book in one sitting, which I think speaks for itself. (I Love a Mystery)
Fans of Agatha Raisin will be absolutely delighted at this latest addition to the series. Ms. Beaton has surpassed herself in The Deadly Dance. (Reviewing the Evidence)
Praise for M.C. Beaton and the Agatha Raisin series:
"Outwardly bossy and vain, inwardly insecure and vulnerable, Agatha grows more endearing with each installment." - Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem." - Publishers Weekly
"Agatha Raisin, a cranky, crude and raunchy woman, somehow manages to warm her way into the reader's heart and elicit their sympathy." - Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Editorial Reviews
