Summary

Summary

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?

“As usual, Beaton conceals any number of surprises behind her trademark wry humor.” Kirkus Reviews
“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
