The Witches' Tree: An Agatha Raisin Mystery (Mass Market Paperbound)
The Witches' Tree continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series--now a hit show on Acorn TV and public television.
This spells trouble...
Driving home from a dinner party in the village of Sumpton Harcourt, Rory and Molly Devere, the new vicar and his wife, strain to see the road ahead--and then suddenly brake, screeching to a halt. Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights, a body hangs from a gnarled tree at the edge of town. An elderly spinster has been murdered--and the villagers just can't fathom who among them could commit such a crime.
Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion (a little glad for the excitement, she must admit, after a long run of lost cats and divorces on the books). But when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation and, since the village happens to have its own coven of witches, her own life. . .
"Once you meet Agatha Raisin, you'll keep coming back."--New York Journal of Books
"M. C. Beaton has a foolproof plot for the village mystery." --The New York Times Book Review
