But the village Fete is unlikely to go smoothly while the killer is still amongst them.

The Civil War The search to find the killer leads Agatha and James to the dreaming spires of Oxford, where they soon get intimate - in a cupboard full of E. M. Forster first editions.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie Ferrari | 5/9/2012

    " I "found" Agatha Raisin again. These are always a fun read providing a murder investigation by a 50's something woman. A murder mystery with a healthy dose of humor; what more could you ask for? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Esmee | 4/12/2011

    " Agatha Raisin is not my favorite character. However, I love M. C. Beaton/Marion Chesney books. I confess I just got caught up in the series because of that! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri | 8/25/2010

    " Same cozy mystery, except I missed some of the regular characters such as Charles and Roy. I did not care for John and am glad he has moved back to London. This was not one of the best of the series sure hope the next one is better. "

    " Agatha Raisin is a middle-aged English woman who think's she's a detective. Somewhat irreverent, but quite likeable. I'm on my second time through listening to these and sometimes they make me laugh out loud when I'm listening in the car. "
