- "Blood is thicker than bottled water..."
- ―The Wellspring of Death's tagline
Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death is the seventh book in the Agatha Raisin Mysteries series by M. C. Beaton. The book was published in 1998.
This time, the feisty sleuth stumbles upon the victim of an unnatural death in Cotswold village's famous natural spring. Who was the unlucky corpse? The Ancombe Parish Council chairman-and the only uncommitted member voting on whether to allow the Ancombe Water Company to tap into the town's spring. Add ex-fiance James, watery politicians, and slippery entrepreneurs to the mix, and you have Agatha up to her neck in a murky murder mystery.
