Publisher's Summary

Suffering from bald patches thanks to a hair conditioner spiked with depilatory cream - supplied by the murderess in her last investigation - Agatha escapes to the coastal resort of Wyckhadden to allow her crowning glory to recover in privacy. A local witch provides her with hair tonic and Agatha’s lost locks begin to grow - but then the witch is found bludgeoned to death. The elderly residents at Agatha’s faded hotel seem innocuous enough, if a little odd. But, as she enquires into the murder she turns up an alarming number of secrets....

The Best One So Far

Would you listen to Agatha Raisin and the Witches of Wyckhadden again? Why?

Yes. I've been reading this series in order, and have enjoyed each of the previous eight books, but this is the best so far. It combines hilarious physical comedy (not easy to do when working with a two-dimensional page), pathos, mystery, and moments of genuine suspense.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha Raisin and the Witches of Wyckhadden?

When Agatha loses her wig, finds the first body.

Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Penelope Keith is brilliant, she can do both male and female voices beautifully, has impeccable timing, and pronunciation.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Agatha Raisin is a complicated 'real' character. The author has created a woman with tragic faults and doesn't 'fix' them. Though Agatha has grown to be a better person, that growth is slow, realistic, believable. Agatha always makes the same stupid mistakes with men, because she follows the 'fault line' of the personality Beaton has created for her. These books are fun.

Too short

The first Agatha raisin books were longer, now they seem to get shorter and shorter, with the solving of the murder coming too quickly just before the end. Still good books, they just go by too fast.
