So when Jimmy is found murdered next day, Agatha and James are both the prime suspects. And they’ll have to work together in order to clear their names …’Beaton’s dry sense of humour and her unflattering but affectionate portrait of gruff, often adolescent-acting Agatha makes this a bloom worth picking’ – “Publishers Weekly”
