Publisher's Summary

An unabridged reading of an Agatha Raisin mystery from M. C. Beaton, read by Penelope Keith.
There may be trouble ahead... so will Agatha face the music? Can the feisty Agatha cut it as a private investigator? She soon learns that running her own detective agency in the Cotswolds is not quite like starring in a Raymond Chandler movie. But then walks in wealthy divorcee Catherine Laggat-Brown, and Agatha is given her first real case.
Death threats, blackmail and physical attack soon follow, and once again Agatha is off scouring the countryside for clues and showing friends and enemies alike what Raisin Investigations can do!

Penelope Keith and MC Beaton are a wonderful combination. Penelope loves and relishes the character she has made her own - Agatha Raisin. Her grasp of different character voices is a treat.
This story is long, with the main protagonists not arriving on the scene until just before chapter 3.
No idea why it is titled the Deadly Dance. Good value.

Another brilliant story, I've absolutely loved it!

This is another fascinating story of Agatha Raisin's adventures. Fantastically written and amazingly performed by Penelopy Keith. She I'd Agatha Raisin and it's a joy to listen. Please please keep them coming!

Preposterous and Hysterical

These books are not literature. The daft plots are peopled by monsters, except the vicar's wife who is a saint. Agatha is a wonderful fright. I never fail to be horrified when I see myself in some of her more ridiculous qualities.
The story of this one is actually even sillier than usual but the moment when we meet Madame Zora reading fortunes at Sir Charles' fete and hear the line "Madame Zora was Gustav", delivered in impeccable deadpan by the always wonderful Penelope Keith, you know you're on solid ground.
So funny.
I have 15 of the series and will probably keep buying them. Highly addictive so be warned.
