Can the feisty Agatha Raisin cut it as a private investigator?
She soon learns that running her own detective agency in the Cotswolds is not quite like starring in a Raymond Chandler movie. But then in walks wealthy divorcée Catherine Laggat-Brown, and presents Agatha with her first real case.
Death threats, blackmail, and worse quickly follow, and once again Agatha is off scouring the countryside for clues and showing friends and enemies alike what Raisin Investigations can do!
Agatha Raisin and The Deadly Dance by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Agatha started her own detective agency! I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by Penelope Keith, she’s just amazing, emphasis and characterization is always so spot on.
I enjoyed the extended recap at the beginning. Felt like at this time, a bit of a refresh was nice.
The book overall felt a bit refreshed. There was a fresh energy about it.
I loved the secretarial typing scene, the model commentary, and the fortune teller banter. Along with classic revisit to her youthful longing with face cream and hair dye.
Agatha’s such a fireball.
Snappy, clever, says whatever without being apologetic to anyone or anything.
