After being nearly killed by both a hired hit man and her former secretary, Agatha Raisin could use some low-key cases. So when Robert Smedley walks through the door of her detective agency, determined to prove that his wife is cheating on him, Raisin Investigations immediately offers to help. Unfortunately for Agatha, Mabel Smedley appears to be the perfect wife: young, pretty, and a regular volunteer at church.
But just as Agatha is ready to give up, Smedley is poisoned with weed killer, leaving Mabel, the prime suspect, poised to inherit a fortune. With no one left to pay her, Agatha has to drop the investigation - that is, until her old friend Sir Charles Fraith turns up again to rekindle her curiosity in the case.

I listened to this audio book on a whim as I couldn't get the book from the library. I am slightly Agatha Raisin obsessed at the moment. Don't ask me why I don't know the answer. She often exasperates me and the writing can be slightly repetitive and yet I still can't stop. I just love them, they are almost cosy?!?
With regards to this audio book...it made me laugh out loud on several occasions. Penelope Keith's "voices" and the way she portrayed Agatha was pretty much spot on for me. I would thoroughly recommend it and look forward to listening to more of these (despite having read the books) as Penelope Keith really does add another dimension. Wonderful, none taxing relaxing and just plain marvellous.
