Description
The tetchy yet loveable Agatha Raisin has always been ambivalent about holiday cheer, even though picturesque Carsely has long prided itself on its Christmas festivities. Until this year, that is, as local health and safety board officer John Sunday has threatened to undo some of the little Cotswold village's most time-honored traditions. In this 21st outing for Agatha, after There Goes the Bride, the Carsely Ladies Society is in an uproar and resolves to put a stop to this Scrooge's efforts, only to find that someone else has done it for them—with a kitchen knife. But when a man has made as many enemies as Sunday, it's hard for Agatha to know where to start her investigation—or how to stop the killer from striking again. Perceptively characterized by the St. Petersburg Times as a "glorious cross between Miss Marple, Auntie Mame, and Lucille Ball, with a tad of pit bull tossed in," Agatha Raisin has won legions of fans since her first foray into crime-solving in Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death. M.C. Beaton gives us the adventures of a cranky middle-aged woman who has a knack for stumbling across mysteries in the English village that she has made her home.

"In bestseller Beaton's terrific 21st Agatha Raisin mystery, the fiercely formidable private detective and her perky young protégé, Toni Gilmour, look into the stabbing murder of John "Grudge" Sunday.... [The author] does a brilliant job of depicting Agatha's struggles with aging and keeping her detective agency afloat. Her romantic upheavals (will she ever marry close friend Sir Charles Fraith?) continue to tantalize."—Publishers Weekly
