Beloved New York Times bestseller M. C. Beaton’s cranky, crafty Agatha Raisin―the star of her own hit TV series―is back on the case again in Devil’s Delight.

Toni and Agatha are in the car on the way to Officer Bill Wong’s long-awaited wedding when, much to their shock, a naked young man bursts through a hedge on the side of the road and comes running toward them.

Terrified, he explains that he has just seen a dead body in the woods. Toni lends him an old t-shirt to cover himself, Agatha calls the police, and the young man takes them to the spot where he saw the body, across from a meadow where the Mircester Naturist Club is due to have its annual summer barbecue.

The young man, Edward, explains that he is the club’s social convener and had arrived early to set things up. He says he found the body at the edge of the woods, near an ancient stone known as The Lone Warrior and said to have once been used as a sacrificial altar.

When they reach the spot, however, there is nothing on the large, flat rock except a small wet patch. Even that has dried up by the time the police arrive, and Chief Inspector Wilkes accuses Agatha of wasting police time on a prank.

But Agatha and Toni grow suspicious after meeting some of the club’s members, whose diverse interests range from artisanal ice cream to ancient curses. And when another disappearance occurs, it’s up to them to put together the pieces … or end up on the altar themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book has the signature snarky, lol moments we love about this series. Author R. W. Green has done another great job…Fans of the series will be happy.” Red Carpet Crash
“I feel the Agatha Raisin mysteries are in safe hands with R. W. Green. I will continue to purchase future installments as long as he remains at the helm. Devil’s Delight delighted me with its nudists and witches.” Gumshoe Review
“Agatha Raisin continues to handle some murders—and some men—more easily than others…The convoluted mystery plays second fiddle to the heroine’s even more convoluted love life.” Kirkus Reviews
“Fans…may appreciate catching up with the current status of Agatha’s ever-expanding team of once, current, and possibly future beaus.” Publishers Weekly
