Weakest so far

The Agatha Raisin mysteries are, for the most part, daft. They're a bit like Sunday night tele. You don't really 'enjoy' them, but you become fond of the characters and sort of end up tuning in over and over. I listened to one out of interest and I've just downloaded book 7. I've even passed a couple on to friends who equally hate to love them. If you're looking for gripping psychological drama, do not stop here. If you like Midsomer Murders and don't mind that the plots are dreadful and there are so many murders, you are pretty much only left with the murderer, you'll love this. Easy to listen to slop.

Don’t let my review put you off

Make your own mind up, but for me this was the worst Agatha book yet read. The narration was lovely, but I really didn’t like the way the two main characters were totally transplanted into another environment with a completely fresh supporting cast. Bill Wong made the odd appearance but apart from that the old characters that we had grown to love simply disappeared

Not as good as the first three Agatha Raisin books.

Weak and rather incoherent book that feels oddly incomplete, but also as if it was written just to set up a slightly different direction for the stories. Penelope Keith’s narration of book one was reasonably good, book three okay, but her narration of this book was absolutely woeful, particularly of the ever-shifting accents. To be honest, the different narrator of book two does a far better job. Disappointing.

A good novel excellently read

The ongoing story continues, excellently read by Penelope Keith with plenty of expression and good differentiation between the characters. An absolute pleasure to listen to.

Magnificent

A great story with plenty of intrigue. Agatha's acerbic wit delivered to perfection by the sublime Penelope Keith.

An absolute pleasure.

Read before. Love the audio. Lovely vocals. Looking forward to another in the series. Hopefully.
