A Cotswolds coven spells danger for Agatha Raisin
Driving home from a dinner party in Sumpton Harcourt on a foggy night, new vicar Rory Devere and his wife, Molly, strain to see the road ahead. At the edge of town, they suddenly screech to a halt. Aglow in the headlights, a body hangs from a gnarled tree. Elderly spinster Margaret Darby has been murdered-and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime.
Cranky, crafty Agatha Raisin is a little glad for the excitement, after a long run of lost cats and divorces. But the village is a small and private place-with its own coven of witches. And when two more murders follow, Agatha fears for her reputation-even her life.
Return to the Cotswolds for this 25th anniversary case-and don't miss Agatha Raisin's hit TV series.
