Publisher Description

Agatha Raisin’s neighboring village of Ancombe is usually the epitome of quiet rural charm, but the arrival of a new mineral-water company—which intends to tap into the village spring—sends tempers flaring and divides the parish council into two stubborn camps. When Agatha, who happens to be the PR person for the water company, finds the council chairman murdered at the spring, tongues start wagging. Could one of the council members have silenced the chairman before he could cast the deciding vote? It is up to Agatha, still nursing a bruised heart from her broken engagement, to investigate the councilors, solve the crime—and promote the water company in the face of all this scandal.

Quotes

  • “Agatha Raisin continues to be an engaging and slightly puzzling heroine in The Wellspring of Death…She engages in the occasional humorous assessment of what life among charming façades and lovely vistas is really like (crowded shopping in too small stores) and has a peculiarly British obsession with class and accent. There is much to appreciate here and little that is daunting or dismal.”

    - Amazon.com, editorial review
  • “Beaton performs deftly, with Agatha pining for James while weighing the pros and cons of village life. Particularly entertaining elements include James’ undercover stint in a militant environment group and, in a finale that follows a second murder, the introduction of a new side to Mrs. Bloxby, the vicar’s usually plodding wife.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Agatha smokes and drinks and carries on appealingly, worrying about taking on a much younger but clearly smarmy lover: her true character flaw is an obsession with the old flame who lives next door. A definite hit.”

    " Still a fan of Agatha Raisin, however seeing Agatha get treated poorly by man after man is getting a little stale. Here's to hoping next one she finds her true love. "
