An unabridged reading of an Agatha Raisin mystery from M. C. Beaton, read by Penelope Keith.
There may be trouble ahead... so will Agatha face the music? Can the feisty Agatha 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 walks in wealthy divorcee Catherine Laggat-Brown, and Agatha is given her first real case.
Death threats, blackmail and physical attack soon follow, and once again Agatha is off scouring the countryside for clues and showing friends and enemies alike what Raisin Investigations can do!

Another brilliant story, I've absolutely loved it!

This is another fascinating story of Agatha Raisin's adventures. Fantastically written and amazingly performed by Penelopy Keith. She I'd Agatha Raisin and it's a joy to listen. Please please keep them coming!

The fifthteen Agatha Raisin I have listened too!

If you could sum up Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance in three words, what would they be?

A bit confusing!

What other book might you compare Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance to, and why?

The whole series is pretty much to a formula, but all enjoyable if you do not take them seriously.

Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Penelope Keith always gives a good performance.

Any additional comments?

A bit confusing, especially where Sir Charles is concerned. I thought that in the previous book he had married a French lady because she was carrying his twin babies, but it turned out that she wasn't pregnant and he got a divorce. In this book he was divorced because she found someone else while he was in hospital because he had had lung cancer and although the children could see 'Papa' anytime he doubted if he would see them again. So, which is it??

Penelope Keith and MC Beaton are a wonderful combination. Penelope loves and relishes the character she has made her own - Agatha Raisin. Her grasp of different character voices is a treat.
This story is long, with the main protagonists not arriving on the scene until just before chapter 3.
No idea why it is titled the Deadly Dance. Good value.
