Agatha Raisin in Down the Hatch (Paperback)M. C. Beaton (author)
When a dead body is found on the sunny green of her bowling club, Beaton’s winsome amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin uncovers a hotbed of jealousy and intrigue under the sleepy surface of her Cotswolds village.
Nothing could be more relaxing or sedate than a quiet game of bowls on a pristine bowling green bathed in the sunshine of an English summer's afternoon in the Cotswolds - unless there's a dead body lying on the grass.
Agatha Raisin becomes embroiled in a turmoil of jealousy and lies when the tranquility of her local bowls club explodes into a storm of accusation and intrigue - and murder. Her private life is no less turbulent when a past suitor reappears just as her ex-husband seems intent on rekindling their romance, and her close friend, Bill Wong, is in danger of losing the woman he loves.
Events take an even darker turn when Agatha realises that, in pursuing the bowling green killer, she is putting her own life in danger...
