Agatha Raisin And The Dead Ringer

Author:

M.C. Beaton

Synopsis:

The idyllic Cotswolds village of Thirk Magna is best known for the medieval church of St. Ethelred and its bells, which are the pride and glory of the whole community. As the bell-ringers get ready for the visit of the dashing Bishop, Peter Salver-Hinkley, the whole village is thrown into a frenzy. But Agatha has other work to do. She convinces one of the bell-ringers, the charming lawyer Julian Brody, to hire her to investigate the mystery of the Bishop's ex-fiancee: a local heiress, Jennifer Toynby, who went missing years ago and whose body was never found. Then a local policeman is discovered murdered in the crypt, followed by other grisly finds.

The night sky is especially foggy as Rory and Molly Harris, the new vicar and his wife, drive home from a dinner party in the Cotswolds.

But it's not suicide; Margaret Darby, an elderly spinster of the parish, has been murdered - and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime.
