Publisher's Summary

The third volume of the M.C. Beaton mystery series, starring Penelope Keith.
When the village curate is found murdered, retired PR guru Agatha Raisin vows to bring his killer to justice, particularly if the investigation also brings her closer to her handsome next-door neighbour, Colonel Lacey. Duck and Cover Still reeling from the death of their curate, the inhabitants of Carsely decide on Duck Racing and Morris Dancing to cheer themselves up. But the village Fete is unlikely to go smoothly while the killer is still amongst them.

It's a radio show

This is actually a recording of a radio show. Yet he actors are excellent and demonstrate the strength of Beaton's dialogue. However the annoying fiddle music and the announcer's input are distracting. Even though this version is cheap I prefer the traditional audio format

full cast audio

I absolutely adore the full cast show. It is well done and Miss Keith is perfect for the character. The only reason I gave it a four star is that they changed the voice of the original Roy and P.C. Wong. Otherwise I highly recommend it. Just like the old time radio shows.

cute, lighthearted and fun

Penelope Keith is a delight. These are fun little stories, when you need to zone out.

Getting better and better!

Every Agatha Raisin book I read is better than the last. I'm reading them in order, due to the backstory of Agatha's love life. This one was very good. I loved the suit of armour scene and the duck races. Highly recommend, can't wait to read the next one, The Haunted House.

Update: I have read all of them now, and re-read this one. It is one of my favourites, just as good as the first one. Read it!
