Publisher's Summary

He was a hairdresser to dye for... The local ladies all deem Mr John a wizard, so when Agatha finds a few grey hairs on her head - and the rinse she tries at home turns her hair purple - she makes a beeline for the handsome Evesham hairdresser. And as well as sorting out her hair it soon becomes clear the charming man also has designs on her heart - but their budding romance is cut short when Mr John is fatally poisoned in his salon. Once again Agatha finds herself embroiled in a murder case. Was it one of Mr John's many lady clients, all of whom divulged to him their darkest secrets? It's time for Agatha to get to the root of this hair-raising mystery!

entertaining and ingenious.

I listen to my books at night before sleeping. This is perfect material. Light, ingenious, funny. Loved it and all of the other stories I have read in this series.

Formulaic but fun

Penny Keith is super in this role and just about musters enough accents to make it work. Story is ok but same old, same old! I have listened to all of these books and I like finding narrative inconsistencies, a bit odd when you consider the author and editors must proof read multiple times.

Not one of the best but still good

I love this series but this one, in my opinion, was not one of the best. I'm not sure why, it just didn't seem to have the usual impact on me. It's still worth a listen but, unlike some of the other titles, I probably won't listen to it again.
