About this deal

The park gardener for the Mircester Crown Bowling Club known as the “Admiral” appears to have died after accidentally drinking rum laced with weedkiller, but Agatha is not fooled! She is still wistful about Toni’s looks and beauty, but doesn’t let pettiness get in the way of their working relationship and their friendship.

Green seems to be writing characters he would be more comfortable meeting, and readers might hope in the future that he will do so on the up-and-up, providing his own characters with their own names and histories, rather than diminish fan favorites with weak pantomimes that ring false. Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I found this book to meander a bit when mentioning and trying to figure out other cases in the middle of the mystery at hand.After the death of the Admiral, an older man who was much disliked by those who knew him,Agatha is involved in looking into it because it seems like it’s more than just an accident. Local gossip points to the Swinburns themselves as the killers, spurred by a feud at the club where they, as well as the Admiral, were members. she glanced up at a sign above the door of a neat pavilion that overlooked the lawn, 'Mircester Crown Green Bowling Club.

Agatha encounters one suspicious character after another, becoming further enmeshed in the Admiral’s own dark and shady past. For close to 30 years, Agatha has been a permanent 53 years old and Toni Gilmour an almost permanent 23 years old (Toni was 17 years old at her very first appearance). The largest upside is the indication that characters may be allowed to evolve now under Green's tenure.

A lelkészné is fájón keveset szerepelt, de Charles-ból ennyi is elég volt (bár régebben nagyon csíptem).To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I loved everything about the book - the story, the characters, the setting, the book cover and the audiobook narrator. As has become common with recent continuation series, the original author's name still has the primary cover credit even when they have been deceased for several years. The book is marginally more like Agatha in that she pays a bit more attention to her appearance – and her ego – but she’s also meeker, milder, and simply has less spirit! BEATON (1936-2019) was the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Agatha Raisin novels -- the basis for the hit show on Acorn TV and public television -- as well as the Hamish Macbeth series and the Edwardian Murder Mysteries featuring Lady Rose Summer.
