The second in the Agatha Raisin murder mysteries complete with brand new cover design.
Agatha lets sleeping vets lie...
Retired PR boss Agatha Raisin is enjoying life in her pretty Cotswold village of Carsely. It even seems likely that the attractive new vet, Paul Bladen, has taken a shine to her. But before romance can blossom, Paul is killed in an accident with Lord Pendlebury's horse. Only the circumstances are rather suspicious.
Agatha decides she must once more play amateur investigator. And this cloud has a silver lining - she can persuade her usually stand-offish neighbour, James Lacey, to become her partner in the quest. As usual, Agatha is quite prepared to rush in, heedless of the lurking menace to both James and herself.
Praise for the Agatha Raisin series:

'Clever red herrings and some wicked unfinished business guarantees that the listener will pant for a sequel.' The Times Audiobook Review
Beaton's dry sense of humour and her unflattering but affectionate portrait of gruff, often adolescent-acting Agatha makes this . . . a bloom worth plucking. - Publishers Weekly
Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining. . . M C Beaton has created a national treasure. - Anne Robinson
It's been said of Agatha Christie that she's given more pleasure in bed than any other woman, but M.C. Beaton is matching her as a prolific purveyor of cosy whodunits perfect for pre-lights out reading ... like Midsummer Murders but with wit and a bit of edge.' - Telegraph on Sunday
