New York Times bestselling author M.C. Beaton—“the reigning queen of the cozies” (Booklist)—is back with As the Pig Turns, an irresistible new adventure for the endearing Agatha Raisin.
The picturesque Cotswold village of Winter Parva has decided to warm a wintry weekend by roasting a pig in the town square. Agatha, always one for a good roasting, arrives with Toni, her former protegée and current rival in the private detection business, to enjoy the merriment. As the pig is being prepared on a rotary spit over a bed of fiery coals, Agatha realizes something’s wrong….
“Stop!” she screams suddenly.
The “pig” is actually Gary Beech, a policeman not exactly beloved by the people of the village—or Agatha herself. In fact, twice in two days, the portly copper had given Agatha tickets for extremely minor infractions. “May he roast slowly over a spit in hell,” an angry Agatha had shouted, regrettably, to interested ears.
Although Agatha truly intends to leave matters to the police, the fat’s in the fire when Gary’s ex-wife hires Toni to investigate! With that provocation, Agatha decides to solve the case herself…and finds her own motivations being raked over the coals.

Reviewer: Barbara G
This was my first time to read a M.C. Beaton book. I really enjoyed it. It was cozy without being too cutesy. Enjoyed all the character's! Will definitely read more by her.
another winning murder mystery for Agatha and crew to figure out...you will enjoy all the twists and turns , i did..get yourself a cup of tea and spend some time with a good book..
When I started this book, I didn't think it was as interesting as some of the other ones..... but soon I was pulled into the story and the mystery. By the time I was finished, I was wishing for another book soon. Agatha is a great character and I enjoy her and all of her "mates".
