Cotswolds inhabitants are used to bad weather, but the night sky is especially foggy as Rory and Molly Harris, the new vicar and his wife, drive slowly home from a dinner party in their village of Sumpton Harcourt.

They struggle to see the road ahead - but then screech to a halt. Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights of their car, a body hangs from a lightning-blasted tree at the edge of town.

But it's not suicide; Margaret Darby, an elderly spinster of the parish, has been murdered - and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime, and why.

Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion, delighted to have some excitement back in her life as if truth be told, she was getting bored of the long run of lost cats and divorces on the books.

But Sumpton Harcourt is an isolated and unfriendly village, she finds a place that poses more questions than answers. And when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation - and her life.

That the village has its own coven of witches certainly doesn't make her feel any better...

MEDIA REVIEWS
The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status * The Times *
A Beaton novel is like The Archers on speed * Daily Mail *
Agatha is like Miss Marple with a drinking problem, a pack-a-day habit and major man lust. In fact, I think she could be living my dream life * Entertainment Weekly *
M.C. Beaton has done it again. My favourite laugh aloud crimevillage crime author has, I think, a slightly darker touch in this latest offering, and it's still wonderful. * Frost Magazine *

“Another excellent Agatha Raisin adventure”

“Great comfort read”

For me, the Agatha Raisin series is to reading what mashed potato is to eating...pure comfort! Although each of the series is a self-contained story, if you're new to the Agatha Raisin series then it's well... More

“Murder, mystery and mayhem in the COTSWOLDS”

A hard book to classify. A fairly simple, but unlikely, mystery set in a Cotswold village. At one extreme it is quite cosy and rural – at the other it is very violent. Agatha Raisin is a bit like Miss Marple on speed... More
