Agathas away with the fairies…and the little folk are causing big trouble for her! Angry at being jilted by new husband James, Agatha follows a fortune-tellers advice and rents a cottage in pretty Fryfam. There, she hopes, true love will come chasing after her. But her romantic notions are dispelled by a series of odd goings-on in the village: strange lights start appearing in her back garden; there are thefts of paintings and pottery; and, her beloved cats vanish. And then the local squire is found dead. Agathas nose for trouble ensnares her in a maelstrom of jealousy, blackmail and dangerous liaisons, especially with a murderer who plans to keep irrepressible Agatha permanently in Fryfam – as a resident corpse! Praise for “The Agatha Raisin Series”: Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining, delightfully intolerant and oh so magnificently non-PC, M.C. Beaton has created a national treasure – Anne Robinson. M.C. Beatons imperfect heroine is an absolute gem – “Publishers Weekly”. The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshing, sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine – “Booklist”.
