In Cotswold, England Gloria French, a new comer, is murdered. Gloria was known around the village as a woman who seduced men and borrowed things from the villagers without returning them. Agatha Raisin is on the case, hired by Jerry Tarrant. Jerry wants a speedy resolution for the murder and to bring peace to the village. Agatha while trying to solve this case comes up with road block after road block.
The book moves steadily along with bodies and attempted murders piling up. The book is a cozy murder with an English flair. I had not read any of the other twenty-four titles in this series. Having said that, I did follow the characters and their relationship but had to stop and review a few times to understand some of the action. I am sure that this book will be another winner for Agatha Raisin fans.
Note: I received an electronic version of this title through NetGalley from St. Martin’s Press for an honest review.
