Publisher's Summary

Even though Agatha Raisin loathes Christmas panto, her friend, Mrs Bloxby, the vicar's wife, has persuaded her to support the local am dram society in their festive offering.

Stifling a yawn at the production of Babes in the Wood, Agatha watches the baker playing an ogre strut and threaten onstage until a trapdoor opens, followed by a scream and silence! Surely this wasn't the way the scene was rehearsed.

When it turns out the local baker had been murdered most horribly, Agatha puts her team of detectives on the case. And they soon discover more feuds and temperamental behaviour in amateur dramatics than in a professional stage show - and face more and more danger as Agatha and her team get too close to the killer.

M. C. Beaton was born in Scotland. She worked for many years as a journalist on Fleet Street. As well as the best-selling Agatha Raisin series, she is the author of the acclaimed Hamish Macbeth mysteries. She divides her time between the Cotswolds, where she lives in a village very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely, and Paris.

What the Critics Say

"The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status." (Anne Robinson, The Times)

"Agatha is like Miss Marple with a drinking problem, a pack-a-day habit and major man lust. In fact, I think she could be living my dream life." (Entertainment Weekly)

    "Thank God for Penelope Keith"

    It is amazing how a different narrator makes such a difference to how I respond to the same story . I bought the CD version of this book when it first came out a year ago and the narrator made the story sound boring and therefore disappointing - it took me a week to listen to that version . Then I bought this same book again when it was narrated by Penelope Keith and she just brought the story and characters to life so that I thoroughly enjoyed it as listened to it in just two days . That's because Penelope Keith IS Agatha Raisin as far as I'm concerned .

    "entertaining with enough twists "

    I love listening to penelope Keith. The characters are like old friends now! The plots are well thought out and Agatha is frustratingly real - I frequently find myself thinking 'Nooo don't do that!' as she gets herself into yet another embarrassing scrape.

    "Easy and entertaining listening"
    If you could sum up Agatha Raisin and the Blood of an Englishman in three words, what would they be?

    These Agatha Raisin novels are great for when you just want some easy and entertaining listening. Penelope Keith as always brings the characters to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The vulnerable yet strong character of Agatha.

    "Well what a marvellous surprise!"

    I only chose this book for the narrator, however what an exceptional surprise!

    Excellent story... This is the sleepy countryside on steroids!

    Loved this, murder, intrigue and much much more. The characters come to life and an incredible read.

    Enjoy :)

    Yet another adventure for the mature lady detective - yet again she lets her pursuit of the ideal man get in her way at times but continues with dogged determination to solve the puzzle of who is the murderer.
