Agatha Raisin is a fun and easy romp - a good light read. The antics of this middle-aged woman are a real lark. These little mysteries are fast-paced and intriguing, with plenty of humour muddled in with the more serious issues and a few little misadventures tossed in for good measure. Agatha has mellowed a little since her earlier days in the Cotswalds, but she is still a stubborn and determined woman, with good legs and a number of male admirers.

This particular instalment deals with the fatal poisoning of a philandering hairdresser - one who considers himself the "Wizard of Evesham". With his charm and good looks, he has worked his way into many of his client's hearts but with a darker motive. And thus, when he dies suddenly, the list of potential suspects is somewhat overwhelming. Defying the police, Agatha takes matters into her own hands and is determined to solve the mystery herself.
