Publisher Description

Almost bigamy and absolute murder—Agatha Raisin’s life is never dull.

The morning of Agatha’s longed-for marriage to James Lacey dawns bright and clear. But her luck runs out in the church when Jimmy, the husband she had believed long dead, turns up large as life and twice as ugly. Agatha has a go at strangling him. It’s all too much for James, who breaks off the engagement. So when Jimmy is found murdered the next day, Agatha and James are both suspects. And they’ll have to work together in order to clear their names.

Quotes

  • “The blunt Agatha Raisin, with her stocky figure and ‘bearlike eyes,’ makes for an unusual sleuth, and her fifth outing certainly makes for an unusual adventure…Beaton, who also pens the Hamish Macbeth series, gleefully creates one excruciating situation after another for her indomitable heroine to endure.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Agatha Raisin had long presumed her first husband dead when she married her attractive neighbor, but then Jimmy Raisin suddenly turns up. When someone murders him that same night, Agatha becomes the prime suspect. A great series.”

    - Library Journal
  • “One of the interesting things about this series is how unappealing the abrasive Agatha can be. She’s vain, snide, and self-pitying on a regular basis. All that adds up to a heroine who is also very human, and perhaps that—we identify with her even if we don’t always like her—is one of the elements that keeps readers coming back. Another is Beaton’s plotting. Like snack food, it’s fast, tasty, and leaves you satisfied.”

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

    - Cleveland Plain Dealer, praise for the series
