Synopsis

This brand new short story from international bestselling M. C. Beaton takes us back to Agatha Raisin's very first case - the case that started it all!



At the age of 26, Agatha Raisin has already come a long way. She has clawed her way up since leaving the slum where she was born. She's lost her Birmingham accent, run away from her drunken husband and found a job at a PR agency as a secretary. When her boss asks Agatha to go to the home of Brian Devese to tell him that he is soon going to be arrested for the murder of his wife and that the agency no longer wants to represent him, Agatha accepts the task - with some trepidation. Still, she's used to doing her boss's dirty work for her.



Brian, impressed with the pugnacious and fearless Agatha, asks her to handle his PR for him and even offers her an office and staff. So certainly the best thing Agatha can do for her first client is to find out who really murdered his wife and clear his name. And armed with only her wits and gumption, Agatha sets out to do just that.
