    The picturesque Cotwsold village of Winter Parva has decided to warm the post-Christmas season by roasting a pig in the town square. Agatha, always one for a good roasting, organizes an outing to enjoy the merriment. But as the rotary spit is placed over a bed of fiery charcoals and the pig is carried toward its final resting place, Agatha realizes that things are not as they seem... Stop!" she screams suddenly. The "pig," in fact, is Gary Beech, a policeman not exactly beloved by the good people of the village. Although Agatha has every intention of leaving matters to the police....

    G. Byrge says: "Beaton always delivers"
    "Penlope Keith is perfect !"

    Story

    Agatha is a breath of fresh air, and Penelope Keith knows her inside and out. The whole Raisen series is a British sit com in written form, and from "Good Neighbors" to "Agatha Raisen", no one portrays a cranky, bitchy, opinionated, reckless goodhearted. British upper class busy-body better than Keith. This is strong hot tea with lemon, thank you, not with warm milk and sugar. The plots are roughly Brit-Sit, too -- who needs to believe them? In the diet of Brit Myst readers, P.D. James may be the hearty main course, but don't forget some Beaton for dessert.
