Recently married to James Lacey, the witty and fractious Agatha Raisin quickly finds that marriage, and love, are not all they are cracked up to be. Rather than basking in marital bliss, the newlyweds are living in separate cottages and accusing each other of infidelity. After a particularly raucous fight in the local pub, James suddenly vanishes—a bloodstain the only clue to his fate—and Agatha is the prime suspect.

Determined to clear her name and find her husband, Agatha begins her investigation. But her sleuthing is thwarted when James’ suspected mistress, Melissa, is found murdered. Joined by her old friend Sir Charles, Agatha digs into Melissa’s past and uncovers two ex-husbands, an angry sister, and dubious relations with bikers. Are Melissa’s death and James’ disappearance connected? Will Agatha reunite with her husband, or will she find herself alone once again?

Quotes & Awards

  • Agatha Raisin and the Love from Hell is sheer fun. Beaton tells a sly story as she satirizes cozy English village life. The intrepid Agatha is in fine form as she proves no one can make a monkey out of her!”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Donada Peters, whose name and voice are synonymous with this plucky middle-aged heroine, paints Aggie as a quirky but endearingly straightforward sleuth. Because Peters has read the whole series, reaching for her audiobooks is like reaching for an old friend.” 

    AudioFile

  • “Among the many joys of all Agatha Raisin adventures are Beaton’s sweetly formal prose and her vivid descriptions of colorful villagers. This one, however, adds a crackerjack plot and a delightfully comic ending to the mix, making it clearly the best of the lot. A must for all cozy fans.”

    Booklist

  • “Anyone interested in a few hours’ worth of intelligent, amusing reading will want to make the acquaintance of Mrs. Agatha Raisin.”

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution, praise for the series
