Interesting evolution of other characters

This is mainly another great chapter I'm the adventures of Agatha Raisin with all the good stuff we've come to love.
Many readers bemoan Agatha's unending fixation with James Lacey, and this volume does not resolve that. But Agatha's belligerence and endearingly human way of being stuck in her ways and blind to some things are a part of her charm. Those bear-like eyes are getting a clearer view in the mirror, little by little. Agatha's love life and complicated personality is the long game of the series.

What's special about this volume is we are given more depth and development of some our favorite supporting characters, particularly Sir Charles. The text gives us greater insight into their understanding of Agatha and really does enliven what could otherwise be a ponderous affair.

The narration is, as always, first rate. Penelope Keith is a gem.
