    Agatha Raisin, retired PR supremo, has been spurned at the altar by the man of her dreams, her attractive neighbour James Lacey. So temporarily deserting the sleepy Cotswold village of Carsely, she pursues her fleeing fiancé to north Cyprus where, instead of enjoying a romantic honeymoon, they witness the killing of an obnoxious tourist in a disco. Can the duo forget their differences and resume their strangely successful sleuthing partnership?

    Not the strongest storyline in the series, bogging occasionally in guide-book style local historical detail, but entertaining nevertheless with Penelope Keith delivering an impeccable and delightfully handled performance as always.

    Meet Agatha Raisin, high-flying public relations boss turned village sleuth. After her many years of bullying and cajoling others, her early retirement to a picture-perfect village in the Cotswolds is a dream come true.

    Story

    M.C.Beaton has introduced a lovely invention in Agatha Raisin; a late middle-aged lady who has sold up her PR business in London to realise a lifelong dream of living in a cottage in the Cotswolds. Far from being a paragon, Agatha has spent her working life bullying and manipulating to succeed in a cutthroat business and finds with a shock that her new idyllic setting may require her to, as one potential friend suggests, "learn to like people".
    The plotline is entertaining, the characters colourful, the heroine amusingly flawed, and the performance by Penelope Keith is truly masterful.
    If you are looking to be entertained this won't fail to please!
