Agatha Raisin in Beating About the Bush

When private detective Agatha Raisin comes across a severed leg in a roadside hedge, it looks like she is about to become involved in a particularly gruesome murder. Looks, however, can be deceiving, as Agatha discovers when she is employed to investigate a case of industrial espionage at a factory where nothing is quite what it seems.

The factory mystery soon turns to murder and a bad-tempered donkey turns Agatha into a national celebrity, before bringing her ridicule and shame. To add to her woes, Agatha finds herself grappling with growing feelings for her friend and occasional lover, Sir Charles Fraith. Then, as a possible solution to the factory murder unfolds, her own life is thrown into deadly peril. Will Agatha get her man at last? Or will the killer get her first?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Cozy fans with a taste for the silly and the offbeat will be gratified. This long-running series shows no sign of losing steam.” Publishers Weekly
“Humor and the familiar cast of quirky characters make for a satisfying addition to the long-running series.” Booklist
“As usual, Beaton conceals any number of surprises behind her trademark wry humor.” Kirkus Reviews
“Keith provides the perfect voice, tone, and tempo for the delightfully flawed Agatha Raisin, who solves crimes in the Cotswolds…Keith differentiates the voices of the many men in Agatha’s life with varying British accents and other class distinctions. Listeners new to the series will quickly pick up on the backstories. Overall, Keith delivers an Agatha who is sassy, totally self-involved, and endearing, making for an engaging and genuinely funny listening experience.” AudioFile
“The Agatha Raisin series is my guilty pleasure―it’s full of perfectly pitched interest, intrigue, and charm.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author, praise for the series
