Read the book instead
- Agatha Raisin: The Quiche of Death review by DG
If you've read the books, you probably won't recognise this as Agatha Raisin. She's young, slim and blonde, as opposed to old, chunky and dark. This seems a very loose adaptation, with everyone being made younger and sexier. The storyline such as it is, involves a murder, by poisoned quiche at the local village fête.
The books have really suffered as the series drags on, and this seems to take the worst of the later books and run with it, instead of taking the early well written ones as it's basis.
If you haven't read the books this will probably please you if you're a fan of cozy murder mystery, tho it's hard to imagine all these young sexy clichéd characters settling in a sleepy Cotswolds village in the first place.
