Quite an enjoyable little read but needed a bit more meat on the bones, I think. Would have been all the better for being a longer story.
Some people don't like reading the Agatha Raisin series of books because they don't like Agatha Raisin! She isn't written as a likeable character, so I don't think she's meant to be liked per se.
I personally don't let that stop me enjoying reading about her little forays, she's a character it's easy to like to dislike! ( )

The Agatha Raisin formula doesn't really work in short story form, but it is a quick, mildly entertaining read to fill a free hour. ( )

First words
Agatha Raisin, private detective, and her friend Mrs. Bloxby, the vicar's wife, sat in the shabby vicarage drawing room in the Cotswold village of Carsley one Saturday in late November, drinking coffee and looking out at a vista of sleety rain driving across the tombstones of the churchyard at the end of the garden.
