Content descriptions

General Note: Sequel to: The witches' tree.
Summary, etc.: The church of St. Ethelred in the village of Thirk Magna is renowned for its team of bell-ringers, the troupe led by identical twins Mavis and Millicent Dupin. Mavis and Millicent are lifelong residents of the remote village-- or were, until their home is broken into one night, and Millicent is murdered. Is the killer one of their co-workers, sick of being bullied to practice for a big performance? Or perhaps Joseph Kennell, a retired lawyer who was heard yelling at the sisters that he felt like strangling them? Kennell swears his innocence, and hires the ever-trusty (if often tipsy) Agatha Raisin to clear his name.

    Beaton is a very canny cozy writer. Her Agatha Raisin series, in which this is the twenty-ninth installment, is set in a quintessentially cozy landscape: the tiny villages of the English Cotswolds. There are the requisite Norman churches, tea at the vicarage, and intervillage rivalries and tensions that reliably boil over into murder. Her latest is especially cozy, involving a group of church bell ringers, one of whom is found in the belfry with her head bashed in. The victim is one of a set of identical twins who had ruled the village and who fought over the attention of the sexy and possibly psychopathic bishop, whose girlfriend vanished, mysteriously, some years before. Agatha investigates both the current and the cold case and falls prey herself to the bishop's scary charms. Beaton is very satisfying on setting, a bit over the top with plot, and too forced when it comes to comedy (contrived hissy fits and confrontations that seem far too staged). Still, for Agatha Raisin fans, this series never loses its appeal. Readers drawn to the setting may also want to try Katie Fforde's nonmystery Cotswold novels. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
