Agatha Raisin: Hot to Trot is the thirty-first and in the main Agatha Raisin Mysteries series by M. C. Beaton. The book will be published October 1, 2020.


Private Detective Agatha Raisin immerses herself in the glittering lifestyle of the fabulously wealthy when Sir Charles Fraith is accused of murder – and Agatha is named as his accomplice!

A high-society wedding, a glitzy masked ball, and an introduction to the world of international show-jumping where the riders are glamorous, the horses are beautiful, and intrigue runs deep, leave Agatha with a list of suspects as long as a stallion’s tail.

Sinister evidence then emerges that appears to seal Sir Charles’s fate and Agatha must uncover the truth before a net of skulduggery closes around him and he loses his ancestral home, his entire estate, and his freedom. And if events weren’t complicated enough… Agatha’s ex-husband James Lacey is back in Carsely and back in Agatha’s heart…
