Feisty Agatha Raisin, until recently a public-relations executive in London, has retired to peaceful Cotswold, where a romance is budding with the attractive new village vet, Dr. Paul Bladen. But Bladen accidentally kills himself while attending to Lord Pendleburys horse, and Agatha must turn to her distinguished neighbor, the retired military man James Lacey, for comfort. Together, the odd couple begin to investigate Dr. Bladens death . . . and the curious lack of sorrow shown by his divorced wife. But will they succeed in unmasking a killer before suffering an accident of their own?
From the creator of the popular Hamish MacBeth mysteries comes a new series, starring Agatha Raisin—an irascible but endearing sleuth in a small English town. The new vet has taken a shine to Agatha, but before romance can bloom, he accidentally kills himself.
