Summary

Penelope Keith - who starred as Agatha Raisin in the popular BBC Radio 4 series - reads M. C. Beaton’s entertaining murder mystery.
Winter Parva, a traditional Cotswolds village next door to Carsely, has decided to throw a celebratory hog roast to mark the beginning of the winter holiday festivities and Agatha Raisin has arrived with friend and rival in the sleuthing business, Toni, to enjoy the merriment. But as the spit pig is carried towards the bed of fiery charcoal Agatha - and the rest of the village - realise that things aren’t as they seem....
Very quickly it transpires that the spit pig is in fact Gary Beech, a policeman not much loved in Winter Parva. And although Agatha has every intention of leaving the affair to the police, she rapidly changes her mind when she finds out Gary’s ex-wife has hired Toni to investigate. Cantankerous and competitive as Agatha is, she has now to join the fray and try and solve the case herself!

Can't go wrong with an Agatha Raisin mystery

MC Beaton writes a wonderful story which is never dull, often incorporates an Aggie Raisin catch cry of 'snakes and bastards' and there is always an unexpected twist. The mystery rockets along at a really great pace and Penelope Keith reads the story brilliantly and captures all characters perfectly. Audible.com could you please get more Aggie Raisin stories.

Agatha is still a cute read...

It's not rocket science, but an easy read.

At least this time she doesn't leap into a new relationship!
