Agatha Raisin pursues a killer whose name rings a bell
The church of St. Ethelred, in the village of Thirk Magna, is renowned for its team of bell-ringers. The troupe is led by identical twins Mavis and Millicent Dupin, lifelong residents of the remote village—until their home is broken into one night, and Millicent is murdered.
Is the killer one of their co-workers, sick of being bullied to practice for a big performance? Or Joseph Kennell, a retired lawyer who was heard yelling at the sisters that he felt like strangling them? Kennell swears his innocence, and hires the ever-trusty (if often tipsy) Agatha Raisin to clear his name. Only she can find the killer—and, hopefully, a handsome man to buy her dinner.
Cranky, crafty Agatha Raisin is now the lead character of her own hit TV series.
