Description
Agatha Raisin is lonely. Busy as she is with her detective agency and the meetings of the Carsely Ladies' Society, she still misses her ex-husband, James Lacey, so she welcomes his return to the cottage next door with her usual triumph of optimism over experience---especially when he invites her on holiday at a surprise location that was once very dear to him. With visions of a romantic hideaway in Italy or the Pacific dancing in her head, Agatha goes off happily with James to...Snoth-on-Sea, in Sussex.While James may have fond memories of boyhood holidays there, Snoth-on-Sea has seen better days, as has the once-grand Palace Hotel, now run-down and tacky and freezing cold. Nor do the other guests have much to recommend them, especially the brassy honeymoon couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jankers, who pick a fight with Agatha in the dining room. But trouble has a way of following Agatha even if romance does not: Just as she and James are preparing to flee to warmer climes, Geraldine Jankers is found dead on the beach---strangled with Agatha's scarf. So much for Agatha's holiday fantasies: Not only is it time to put her detective skills to work, but the police are not even sure that she'll be allowed to leave town.

The seventeenth installment in the beloved Agatha Raisin series. Agatha Raisin thinks she’s in for a treat when her ex-husband James Lacey invites her on a seaside vacation; but to Agatha's horror, James’ idea of a holiday destination is a small, rundown town called Snoth-on-Sea. And when a woman staying in the same hotel as Agatha and James is murdered, Agatha’s notoriously prickly demeanor soon gets her into trouble—as she’s quite quickly pegged as the prime suspect. If Agatha can’t solve the murder in time, she’ll be meddling in all her future cases from the inside of a prison cell!
