Description

If only the bossy, beloved Agatha Raisin were as lucky at finding the right man as she is at catching killers in M. C. Beaton's New York Times bestselling mystery series 
Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of everyone's favorite sleuth, M. C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin is as feisty as ever—armed with her famous wit and biting sense of humor. This time, though, there's some biting of a whole other sort going on. Agatha has fallen head over heels in love—again. This time, she has her eye on the local gardener, George Marston, but so do other women in their little Cotswold village. Shamelessly determined, Agatha will do anything to get her man—including footing the bill for a charity ball just for the chance to dance with him. And then George doesn't even show up. Only partly deterred, Agatha goes looking for him, and finds his dead body in a compost heap. Murder is definitely afoot, but this killer chose no ordinary weapon: A poisonous snake delivered the fatal strike.

Rising to the occasion, Agatha rallies her little detective agency to find the killer, only to learn that George had quite a complicated love life. But murderously complicated? Well, if she can't have George, at least Agatha can have the satisfaction of confronting the other women and solving the crime. With Hiss & Hers, once again, "M. C. Beaton has a foolproof plot for the village mystery" (The New York Times Book Review) in the irresistible adventures of the irrepressible Agatha.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 16, 2012 – Bestseller Beaton’s disappointing 23rd Agatha Raisin mystery (after 2011’s As the Pig Turns) finds Agatha moony over gardener George Marston, a former soldier who relocated to the Cotswolds after he was wounded in Afghanistan. After a ball in the village of Carsely, Agatha finds George’s body buried in his compost heap, a bag tied around his head. George’s sister hires Agatha and her detective agency to investigate the murder, which was caused by adders biting him inside the bag. To Agatha’s chagrin, she discovers that George was stringing along several women, including one who is mentally unstable and claiming to be his fiancée. Another death and the abduction of Agatha and her associate, Toni, are tangential to Agatha’s romantic problems, as her ex-husband, James Lacey, and friend Sir Charles Fraith remain in her orbit. Agatha’s foolish behavior, a painfully obvious culprit, and disjointed storytelling make this an outing for only the most devoted fans—and those celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary.

Boring with a confusing cast of characters
