Book Synopsis

After six grueling months back in London, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village of Carsely - and to the charms of her neighbor, James Lacey. True, James is less than thrilled to see her, but Agatha is soon distracted by a sensational murder. The victim, hiker Jessica Tartinck, spent her life enraging wealthy landowners by insisting on her walking club's right to hike over their properties. Now she has been found dead.... 

Book Review

Off again on my and Agatha Raisin's travels - this time she's out in the countryside, meeting up with Sir Charles Fraith for the first time, getting involved in an investigation around a Rambling Society seemingly populated by militants, lesbians, lost souls, IRA sympathisers and a hefty-dose of class warefare. Agatha and James find themselves masquerading as a married couple, albeit shacked up together in a furnished apartment, with James barricaded into his own bedroom by way of a chair propped under the door knob. Another good, non-distracting audio book read by the inimitable Penelope Keith who sounds like she was born to narrate exactly this sort of thing.
