Move over Hercule! (Poirot, that is.)

Yes, we all have heard about this famous detective with the egg shaped head, the little pot belly and the amazing detective skills. But don’t you think he can be just a little bit, well, smug?

Now here’s a group of interesting and cunning detectives - Hamish Macbeth, Agatha Raisin, Lady Rose Summer, and the Travelling Matchmaker. Sure, they can also be pigheaded, vain, tactless and occasionally bumbling but hey, they’re endearing! They come without all the smart alec attitude that so many of our fictional detectives have!

All of these characters and their ‘cosy’ murderous or romantic adventures are the products of Marion Chesney aka M C Beaton and are available as ebooks on YPRL’s Overdrive.MG.
