After six months in London, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village—and her dashing neighbor, James Lacey. Well, sort of. James might not be so interested in Agatha. But soon enough, Agatha becomes consumed by her other passion: crime solving. A woman has been found dead in a lonely field nearby. Her name is Jessica Tartinck, a hiker who infuriated wealthy landowners by insisting on her hiking club’s right to trek across their properties.

Now it’s up to Agatha, with James’ help, to launch an investigation. Together, they will follow no shortage of leads—many of Jessica’s fellow Dembley walkers seem all too willing and able to commit murder. But the trail of a killer is as easy to lose as your heart—and your life. So Agatha and James had better watch their every step.

    " Poor love-lorn Agatha. Still trying to attract James. Asked to solve murders of militant hikers. All the suspects are nasty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 2/17/2014

    " I really have enjoyed this series so far, but I didn't like this book as much as the last three. I get a little frustrated with Agatha's lies at times - (especially the one at the end) - mostly because I think she'd learn that it just doesn't work! I'll still be reading the next one though =). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb Lorenzi | 2/9/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 1/22/2014

    " The Walkers of Dembley involes a group of day trip walking fans. The Dembley has taken on the role of challenging landowners over ancient right of ways. When the leader of the group is murdered, the mother of one of the prime suspects askes Mrs. Raisin to help clear her daughter. Agatha Rain goes under cover with her love interest to solve the case. The decective part of the story is okay buut the whole story is more filled with the riomantic endeavors of Raisin. "

    " I love this series, this one was really a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/4/2014

    " I just can't get enough of this series! The mysteries are fun, but not easy to figure out and the characters' personalities just make the whole story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 1/4/2014

    " Another Agatha Raisin book from the 3 for 5 pounds table in a book store in Salisbury UK. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona | 1/1/2014

    " Thank goodness it was better than #3 as I thought after #3 I might give up as it was getting a bit stale to me. This comes back to live though so am glad I continued. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loripdx | 12/11/2013

    " Entertaining enough, but probably my least favorite of the Agatha Raisin books I've read so far. I will, however, be listening to #5 shortly. Hopefully the pace will pick back up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stuart Douglas | 11/19/2013

    " A little bit disappointing, with an occasionally very clunky writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 10/20/2013

    " Not one of my most favorite of the series I've read so far. It was fun to see Agatha & James pretend to be married in an effort to solve the murder. And I find myself rooting for them to become an item. And the end of the book was very satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 June | 6/7/2013

    " I did not read this series in order but it would probably be best to do so. Quite a short story but enjoyable, unsure why Agatha not entirely truthful at the end. Agatha is such a strong intelligent woman in so many ways her failing is in relationships particularly with men. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shally | 4/26/2013

    " Fun and short read. Reminds me of Janet Evanovich's Plum series only with a more mature protagonist and set in England. "
