Agatha Raisin and D.C. Superintendent Konrad Simonsen are back for more adventures and Sharon Bolton’s latest LibraryReads pick will keep you guessing until the very end:

DAISY IN CHAINS by Sharon Bolton
A September 2016 LibraryReads pick! A criminal defense attorney with a reputation for getting the wrongly convicted exonerated is drawn into the machinations of a serial killer who claims innocence. “No detail should be missed, no nuance overlooked in Bolton’s chilling tale of a master manipulator who leaves nothing to chance.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

PUSHING UP DAISIES by M.C. Beaton
Don’t miss Agatha Raisin’s adventures on the small screen!Agatha Raisin is in top form in bestseller Beaton’s 27th mystery featuring the exasperating, vulnerable, endearing owner of a thriving private detective agency in the Cotswolds village of Carsley. Agatha may be disappointed in love once again, but a twisty plot, a familiar cast of eccentric characters, and a charming English country setting mean that lovers of cozy mysteries will be satisfied indeed.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove

Agatha Raisin’s on TV!

If you don’t know M.C. Beaton‘s feisty, gloriously non-pc PR maven-turned-amateur sleuth, Agatha Raisin, you should. She solves many a murder (and falls desperately for many a man) in the cozy Cotswold village of Carsely, which isn’t quite as peaceful as it seems.

Readers familiar with Agatha’s adventures can now watch them on the small screen in the Acorn TV series “Agatha Raisin.”

The first episode, “Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death,” airs today (watch it right here!) and every following Monday on Acorn through the end of September (Acorn is available through Apple TV, Roku, and Samsung). “Agatha Raisin” will start airing on select PBS stations in 2017.

The New York Times even did a write-up about actress Ashley Jensen and praised the show: “…armed with a P.R. storyboard and some chutzpah, a wine-swilling, man-lusting, thoroughly modern Miss Marple is born in this adaptation of M. C. Beaton’s merry mysteries.”

Viewers turning to the books can start with the TV tie-in edition of INTRODUCING AGATHA RAISIN, an omnibus of the first two titles in the series, THE QUICHE OF DEATH and THE VICIOUS VET. Readers will have plenty to enjoy after that—the 27th book in the series, PUSHING UP DAISIES, is available September 20, 2016.
