Publisher's Summary

A therapist moved into the village of Carsely, and Agatha Raisin hated her. Not only was this therapist, Jill Davent, romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she had dug up details of Agatha's slum background.

Added to that, Jill was counselling a woman called Gwen Simple from Winter Parva, and Agatha firmly believed Gwen to have assisted her son in some grisly murders, although she has no proof she had done so.

A resentment is different from a dislike and needs to be shared, so as the friendship between James and Jill grows stronger, the more Agatha does to try to find out all she can about her. When Jill is found strangled to death in her office two days later, Agatha finds herself under suspicion - and must fight to clear her name.

    "Thank god for Penelope Keith"

    I loved “Dishing The Dirt” simply because it was read by Penelope Keith , who IS Agatha Raisin as far as I am concerned . After hearing the last book “ Blood of an Englishman” being read by someone else I was so disappointed that if that same person read this new novel , I wasn’t going to buy it . So I was very relieved to find Penelope Keith reading it and enjoyed it so much that I heard the whole novel in just 2 days .I am afraid I am biased and love all the Agatha Raisin novels including this one .

    Story
    "Great Fun!!"
    If you could sum up Agatha Raisin: Dishing the Dirt in three words, what would they be?

    Marvellous as always!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha Raisin: Dishing the Dirt?

    The ongoing torment of her relationship with her ex-husband, James.


    What does Penelope Keith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She brings the characters to life- nobody does it better!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!

    "Becoming rather formulaic"

    There is nothing wrong with the story and certainly not Penelope Keith's telling of it but I felt more strongly than ever that M C Beaton is becoming repetitive and the stories follow a similar pattern in her recent works. There is no more character development and too many nod the cast remain very lightly drawn. It must be difficult to stay original after so many books but the series is going the wrong way.

    "easy listening"

    A bit predictable but fine to listen to whilst doing other things.
    3 more words to reach minimum for review, how silly. People should write as much or as little as they choose.

    "Great fun as always"

    Penelope Keith is such a good narrator. The books are so much better than the TV adaptations and Ms Keith really brings them to life. Can't wait for the next book. ☺

    Story
    "Ruined the whole series for me! Awful!"

    I used to be a fan of the series before I listened to this book, which ruined all! The series were becoming repetitive and more tedious but in this book Agatha Raisin is more arrogant and blunt than ever! The plot has more murders than you could keep count of, new characters are briefly introduced, after which they either get murdered or become murderers. The author insults freely Polish people and speaks with condescending language towards all Eastern Europeans, or perhaps it is how Penelope Keith is reading it out, either way, it looks really shallow! I am not Polish, but I am both British and European and I'd like to remind both M. C. Beaton and the publishers that English village crime mystery has more fans internationally and in Europe, (including Eastern Europe) rather than in the UK, so really you are ruining your own success! And as just when you think that the book could not get any worse, the plot twist turns out to be ignorant. Spoiler alert: could anyone please tell M. C. Beaton that identical twins cannot be of a different gender, nor do they have a different DNA.
