The blood of an Englishman

The blood of an Englishman

Beaton, M. C. author

"Fee, fie, fo, fum. I smell the blood of an Englishman..." Even though Agatha Raisin loathes amateur dramatics, her friend Mrs Bloxby, the vicar's wife, has persuaded her to support the local pantomime, "Babes in the Woods". Stifling a yawn, she watches as the baker who plays the ogre, disappears in a puff of smoke. But he doesn't re-appear at final curtain and Agatha soon discovers he's been murdered. She puts her team of private detectives on the case who find more feuds in amateur theatrics than in a professional stage show. As they get closer to the killer, they face more and more danger
